## Is 597 a perfect square number?

A number is a perfect square (or a square number) if its square root is an integer; that is to say, it is the product of an integer with itself. Here, the square root of 597 is about 24.434.

Thus, the square root of 597 is not an integer, and therefore 597 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 597?

The square of a number (here 597) is the result of the product of this number (597) by itself (i.e., 597 × 597); the square of 597 is sometimes called "raising 597 to the power 2", or "597 squared".

The square of 597 is 356 409 because 597 × 597 = 5972 = 356 409.

As a consequence, 597 is the square root of 356 409.

## Number of digits of 597

597 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 597?

The multiples of 597 are all integers evenly divisible by 597, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 597 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 597. The smallest multiples of 597 are:

## How to determine whether an integer is a prime number?

To determine the primality of a number, several algorithms can be used. The most naive technique is to test all divisors strictly smaller to the number of which we want to determine the primality (here 597). First, we can eliminate all even numbers greater than 2 (and hence 4, 6, 8…). Then, we can stop this check when we reach the square root of the number of which we want to determine the primality (here the square root is about 24.434). Historically, the sieve of Eratosthenes (dating from the Greek mathematics) implements this technique in a relatively efficient manner.

More modern techniques include the sieve of Atkin, probabilistic algorithms, and the cyclotomic AKS test.
