Is 609 a prime number? What are the divisors of 609?

## Is 609 a prime number?

It is possible to find out using mathematical methods whether a given integer is a prime number or not.

For 609, the answer is: No, 609 is not a prime number.

The list of all positive divisors (i.e., the list of all integers that divide 609) is as follows: 1, 3, 7, 21, 29, 87, 203, 609.

To be 609 a prime number, it would have been required that 609 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

As a consequence:

• 609 is a multiple of 1
• 609 is a multiple of 3
• 609 is a multiple of 7
• 609 is a multiple of 21
• 609 is a multiple of 29
• 609 is a multiple of 87
• 609 is a multiple of 203

To be 609 a prime number, it would have been required that 609 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

## Is 609 a deficient number?

Yes, 609 is a deficient number, that is to say 609 is a natural number that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 609 without 609 itself (that is 1 + 3 + 7 + 21 + 29 + 87 + 203 = 351).

## Parity of 609

609 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 609 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 609 is about 24.678.

Thus, the square root of 609 is not an integer, and therefore 609 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 609?

The square of a number (here 609) is the result of the product of this number (609) by itself (i.e., 609 × 609); the square of 609 is sometimes called "raising 609 to the power 2", or "609 squared".

The square of 609 is 370 881 because 609 × 609 = 6092 = 370 881.

As a consequence, 609 is the square root of 370 881.

## Number of digits of 609

609 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 609?

The multiples of 609 are all integers evenly divisible by 609, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 609 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 609. The smallest multiples of 609 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 609 too, since 0 × 609 = 0
• 609: indeed, 609 is a multiple of itself, since 609 is evenly divisible by 609 (we have 609 / 609 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 1 218: indeed, 1 218 = 609 × 2
• 1 827: indeed, 1 827 = 609 × 3
• 2 436: indeed, 2 436 = 609 × 4
• 3 045: indeed, 3 045 = 609 × 5
• etc.

## 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 609). 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 24.678). 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.
