Is 635 a prime number? What are the divisors of 635?

Is 635 a prime number?

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

For 635, the answer is: No, 635 is not a prime number.

The list of all positive divisors (i.e., the list of all integers that divide 635) is as follows: 1, 5, 127, 635.

To be 635 a prime number, it would have been required that 635 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

As a consequence:

  • 635 is a multiple of 1
  • 635 is a multiple of 5
  • 635 is a multiple of 127

To be 635 a prime number, it would have been required that 635 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

However, 635 is a semiprime (also called biprime or 2-almost-prime), because it is the product of a two non-necessarily distinct prime numbers. Indeed, 635 = 5 x 127, where 5 and 127 are both prime numbers.

Is 635 a deficient number?

Yes, 635 is a deficient number, that is to say 635 is a natural number that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 635 without 635 itself (that is 1 + 5 + 127 = 133).

Parity of 635

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

Is 635 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 635 is about 25.199.

Thus, the square root of 635 is not an integer, and therefore 635 is not a square number.

What is the square number of 635?

The square of a number (here 635) is the result of the product of this number (635) by itself (i.e., 635 × 635); the square of 635 is sometimes called "raising 635 to the power 2", or "635 squared".

The square of 635 is 403 225 because 635 × 635 = 6352 = 403 225.

As a consequence, 635 is the square root of 403 225.

Number of digits of 635

635 is a number with 3 digits.

What are the multiples of 635?

The multiples of 635 are all integers evenly divisible by 635, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 635 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 635. The smallest multiples of 635 are:

  • 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 635 too, since 0 × 635 = 0
  • 635: indeed, 635 is a multiple of itself, since 635 is evenly divisible by 635 (we have 635 / 635 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
  • 1 270: indeed, 1 270 = 635 × 2
  • 1 905: indeed, 1 905 = 635 × 3
  • 2 540: indeed, 2 540 = 635 × 4
  • 3 175: indeed, 3 175 = 635 × 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 635). 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 25.199). 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.
