Is 840 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 840 is about 28.983.

Thus, the square root of 840 is not an integer, and therefore 840 is not a square number.

What is the square number of 840?

The square of a number (here 840) is the result of the product of this number (840) by itself (i.e., 840 × 840); the square of 840 is sometimes called "raising 840 to the power 2", or "840 squared".

The square of 840 is 705 600 because 840 × 840 = 8402 = 705 600.

As a consequence, 840 is the square root of 705 600.

Number of digits of 840

840 is a number with 3 digits.

What are the multiples of 840?

The multiples of 840 are all integers evenly divisible by 840, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 840 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 840. The smallest multiples of 840 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 840). 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 28.983). 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.
