## Is 809 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 809 is about 28.443.

Thus, the square root of 809 is not an integer, and therefore 809 is not a square number.

Anyway, 809 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 809?

The square of a number (here 809) is the result of the product of this number (809) by itself (i.e., 809 × 809); the square of 809 is sometimes called "raising 809 to the power 2", or "809 squared".

The square of 809 is 654 481 because 809 × 809 = 8092 = 654 481.

As a consequence, 809 is the square root of 654 481.

## Number of digits of 809

809 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 809?

The multiples of 809 are all integers evenly divisible by 809, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 809 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 809. The smallest multiples of 809 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 809). 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 28.443). 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.
