## Is 75 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 75 is about 8.660.

Thus, the square root of 75 is not an integer, and therefore 75 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 75?

The square of a number (here 75) is the result of the product of this number (75) by itself (i.e., 75 × 75); the square of 75 is sometimes called "raising 75 to the power 2", or "75 squared".

The square of 75 is 5 625 because 75 × 75 = 752 = 5 625.

As a consequence, 75 is the square root of 5 625.

## Number of digits of 75

75 is a number with 2 digits.

## What are the multiples of 75?

The multiples of 75 are all integers evenly divisible by 75, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 75 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 75. The smallest multiples of 75 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 75 too, since 0 × 75 = 0
• 75: indeed, 75 is a multiple of itself, since 75 is evenly divisible by 75 (we have 75 / 75 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 150: indeed, 150 = 75 × 2
• 225: indeed, 225 = 75 × 3
• 300: indeed, 300 = 75 × 4
• 375: indeed, 375 = 75 × 5
• etc.

## 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 75). 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 8.660). 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.
