Is 6977 a prime number? What are the divisors of 6977?

Is 6977 a prime number?

Yes, 6977 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 6977, the only two divisors are 1 and 6977. Therefore 6977 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 6977 is only a multiple of 1 and 6977.

Since 6977 is a prime number, 6977 is also a deficient number, that is to say 6977 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 6977 without 6977 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

Parity of 6977

6977 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

Is 6977 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 6977 is about 83.528.

Thus, the square root of 6977 is not an integer, and therefore 6977 is not a square number.

Anyway, 6977 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

What is the square number of 6977?

The square of a number (here 6977) is the result of the product of this number (6977) by itself (i.e., 6977 × 6977); the square of 6977 is sometimes called "raising 6977 to the power 2", or "6977 squared".

The square of 6977 is 48 678 529 because 6977 × 6977 = 69772 = 48 678 529.

As a consequence, 6977 is the square root of 48 678 529.
