Is 6359 a prime number? What are the divisors of 6359?

## Is 6359 a prime number?

Yes, 6359 is a prime number.

Indeed, the definition of a prime numbers is to have only two distinct positive divisors, 1 and itself. A number is a divisor of another number when the remainder of Euclid’s division of the second one by the first one is zero. Concerning the number 6359, the only two divisors are 1 and 6359. Therefore 6359 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 6359 is only a multiple of 1 and 6359.

Since 6359 is a prime number, 6359 is also a deficient number, that is to say 6359 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 6359 without 6359 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 6359

6359 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 6359 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 6359 is about 79.743.

Thus, the square root of 6359 is not an integer, and therefore 6359 is not a square number.

Anyway, 6359 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 6359?

The square of a number (here 6359) is the result of the product of this number (6359) by itself (i.e., 6359 × 6359); the square of 6359 is sometimes called "raising 6359 to the power 2", or "6359 squared".

The square of 6359 is 40 436 881 because 6359 × 6359 = 63592 = 40 436 881.

As a consequence, 6359 is the square root of 40 436 881.

## Number of digits of 6359
