Is 633 a prime number? What are the divisors of 633?

Is 633 a prime number?

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

For 633, the answer is: No, 633 is not a prime number.

The list of all positive divisors (i.e., the list of all integers that divide 633) is as follows: 1, 3, 211, 633.

To be 633 a prime number, it would have been required that 633 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

As a consequence:

  • 633 is a multiple of 1
  • 633 is a multiple of 3
  • 633 is a multiple of 211

To be 633 a prime number, it would have been required that 633 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

However, 633 is a semiprime (also called biprime or 2-almost-prime), because it is the product of a two non-necessarily distinct prime numbers. Indeed, 633 = 3 x 211, where 3 and 211 are both prime numbers.

Is 633 a deficient number?

Yes, 633 is a deficient number, that is to say 633 is a natural number that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 633 without 633 itself (that is 1 + 3 + 211 = 215).

Parity of 633

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

Is 633 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 633 is about 25.159.

Thus, the square root of 633 is not an integer, and therefore 633 is not a square number.

What is the square number of 633?

The square of a number (here 633) is the result of the product of this number (633) by itself (i.e., 633 × 633); the square of 633 is sometimes called "raising 633 to the power 2", or "633 squared".

The square of 633 is 400 689 because 633 × 633 = 6332 = 400 689.

As a consequence, 633 is the square root of 400 689.

Number of digits of 633

633 is a number with 3 digits.

What are the multiples of 633?

The multiples of 633 are all integers evenly divisible by 633, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 633 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 633. The smallest multiples of 633 are:

  • 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 633 too, since 0 × 633 = 0
  • 633: indeed, 633 is a multiple of itself, since 633 is evenly divisible by 633 (we have 633 / 633 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
  • 1 266: indeed, 1 266 = 633 × 2
  • 1 899: indeed, 1 899 = 633 × 3
  • 2 532: indeed, 2 532 = 633 × 4
  • 3 165: indeed, 3 165 = 633 × 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 633). 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 25.159). 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.
