## Is 717 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 717 is about 26.777.

Thus, the square root of 717 is not an integer, and therefore 717 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 717?

The square of a number (here 717) is the result of the product of this number (717) by itself (i.e., 717 × 717); the square of 717 is sometimes called "raising 717 to the power 2", or "717 squared".

The square of 717 is 514 089 because 717 × 717 = 7172 = 514 089.

As a consequence, 717 is the square root of 514 089.

## Number of digits of 717

717 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 717?

The multiples of 717 are all integers evenly divisible by 717, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 717 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 717. The smallest multiples of 717 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 717). 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 26.777). 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.
