## Is 657 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 657 is about 25.632.

Thus, the square root of 657 is not an integer, and therefore 657 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 657?

The square of a number (here 657) is the result of the product of this number (657) by itself (i.e., 657 × 657); the square of 657 is sometimes called "raising 657 to the power 2", or "657 squared".

The square of 657 is 431 649 because 657 × 657 = 6572 = 431 649.

As a consequence, 657 is the square root of 431 649.

## Number of digits of 657

657 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 657?

The multiples of 657 are all integers evenly divisible by 657, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 657 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 657. The smallest multiples of 657 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 657). 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 25.632). 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.
