## Is 847 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 847 is about 29.103.

Thus, the square root of 847 is not an integer, and therefore 847 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 847?

The square of a number (here 847) is the result of the product of this number (847) by itself (i.e., 847 × 847); the square of 847 is sometimes called "raising 847 to the power 2", or "847 squared".

The square of 847 is 717 409 because 847 × 847 = 8472 = 717 409.

As a consequence, 847 is the square root of 717 409.

## Number of digits of 847

847 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 847?

The multiples of 847 are all integers evenly divisible by 847, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 847 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 847. The smallest multiples of 847 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 847). 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 29.103). 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.
