## Is 787 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 787 is about 28.054.

Thus, the square root of 787 is not an integer, and therefore 787 is not a square number.

Anyway, 787 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 787?

The square of a number (here 787) is the result of the product of this number (787) by itself (i.e., 787 × 787); the square of 787 is sometimes called "raising 787 to the power 2", or "787 squared".

The square of 787 is 619 369 because 787 × 787 = 7872 = 619 369.

As a consequence, 787 is the square root of 619 369.

## Number of digits of 787

787 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 787?

The multiples of 787 are all integers evenly divisible by 787, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 787 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 787. The smallest multiples of 787 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 787). 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 28.054). 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.
