## Is 817 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 817 is about 28.583.

Thus, the square root of 817 is not an integer, and therefore 817 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 817?

The square of a number (here 817) is the result of the product of this number (817) by itself (i.e., 817 × 817); the square of 817 is sometimes called "raising 817 to the power 2", or "817 squared".

The square of 817 is 667 489 because 817 × 817 = 8172 = 667 489.

As a consequence, 817 is the square root of 667 489.

## Number of digits of 817

817 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 817?

The multiples of 817 are all integers evenly divisible by 817, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 817 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 817. The smallest multiples of 817 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 817). 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 28.583). 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.
