## Is 736 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 736 is about 27.129.

Thus, the square root of 736 is not an integer, and therefore 736 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 736?

The square of a number (here 736) is the result of the product of this number (736) by itself (i.e., 736 × 736); the square of 736 is sometimes called "raising 736 to the power 2", or "736 squared".

The square of 736 is 541 696 because 736 × 736 = 7362 = 541 696.

As a consequence, 736 is the square root of 541 696.

## Number of digits of 736

736 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 736?

The multiples of 736 are all integers evenly divisible by 736, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 736 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 736. The smallest multiples of 736 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 736). 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 27.129). 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.
