## Is 724 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 724 is about 26.907.

Thus, the square root of 724 is not an integer, and therefore 724 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 724?

The square of a number (here 724) is the result of the product of this number (724) by itself (i.e., 724 × 724); the square of 724 is sometimes called "raising 724 to the power 2", or "724 squared".

The square of 724 is 524 176 because 724 × 724 = 7242 = 524 176.

As a consequence, 724 is the square root of 524 176.

## Number of digits of 724

724 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 724?

The multiples of 724 are all integers evenly divisible by 724, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 724 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 724. The smallest multiples of 724 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 724). 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 26.907). 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.
