## Is 646 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 646 is about 25.417.

Thus, the square root of 646 is not an integer, and therefore 646 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 646?

The square of a number (here 646) is the result of the product of this number (646) by itself (i.e., 646 × 646); the square of 646 is sometimes called "raising 646 to the power 2", or "646 squared".

The square of 646 is 417 316 because 646 × 646 = 6462 = 417 316.

As a consequence, 646 is the square root of 417 316.

## Number of digits of 646

646 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 646?

The multiples of 646 are all integers evenly divisible by 646, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 646 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 646. The smallest multiples of 646 are:

## 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 646). 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 25.417). 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.
