## Is 608 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 608 is about 24.658.

Thus, the square root of 608 is not an integer, and therefore 608 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 608?

The square of a number (here 608) is the result of the product of this number (608) by itself (i.e., 608 × 608); the square of 608 is sometimes called "raising 608 to the power 2", or "608 squared".

The square of 608 is 369 664 because 608 × 608 = 6082 = 369 664.

As a consequence, 608 is the square root of 369 664.

## Number of digits of 608

608 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 608?

The multiples of 608 are all integers evenly divisible by 608, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 608 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 608. The smallest multiples of 608 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 608). 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 24.658). 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.
