Is 6421 a prime number? What are the divisors of 6421?

## Is 6421 a prime number?

Yes, 6421 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 6421, the only two divisors are 1 and 6421. Therefore 6421 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 6421 is only a multiple of 1 and 6421.

Since 6421 is a prime number, 6421 is also a deficient number, that is to say 6421 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 6421 without 6421 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 6421

6421 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 6421 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 6421 is about 80.131.

Thus, the square root of 6421 is not an integer, and therefore 6421 is not a square number.

Anyway, 6421 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 6421?

The square of a number (here 6421) is the result of the product of this number (6421) by itself (i.e., 6421 × 6421); the square of 6421 is sometimes called "raising 6421 to the power 2", or "6421 squared".

The square of 6421 is 41 229 241 because 6421 × 6421 = 64212 = 41 229 241.

As a consequence, 6421 is the square root of 41 229 241.

## Number of digits of 6421

6421 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 6421?

The multiples of 6421 are all integers evenly divisible by 6421, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 6421 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 6421. The smallest multiples of 6421 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 6421 too, since 0 × 6421 = 0
• 6421: indeed, 6421 is a multiple of itself, since 6421 is evenly divisible by 6421 (we have 6421 / 6421 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 12 842: indeed, 12 842 = 6421 × 2
• 19 263: indeed, 19 263 = 6421 × 3
• 25 684: indeed, 25 684 = 6421 × 4
• 32 105: indeed, 32 105 = 6421 × 5
• etc.
