## Is 685 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 685 is about 26.173.

Thus, the square root of 685 is not an integer, and therefore 685 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 685?

The square of a number (here 685) is the result of the product of this number (685) by itself (i.e., 685 × 685); the square of 685 is sometimes called "raising 685 to the power 2", or "685 squared".

The square of 685 is 469 225 because 685 × 685 = 6852 = 469 225.

As a consequence, 685 is the square root of 469 225.

## Number of digits of 685

685 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 685?

The multiples of 685 are all integers evenly divisible by 685, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 685 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 685. The smallest multiples of 685 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 685). 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 26.173). 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.
