Is 8501 a prime number? What are the divisors of 8501?

Is 8501 a prime number?

Yes, 8501 is a prime number.

Indeed, the definition of a prime numbers is to have only two distinct positive divisors, 1 and itself. A number is a divisor of another number when the remainder of Euclid’s division of the second one by the first one is zero. Concerning the number 8501, the only two divisors are 1 and 8501. Therefore 8501 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 8501 is only a multiple of 1 and 8501.

Since 8501 is a prime number, 8501 is also a deficient number, that is to say 8501 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 8501 without 8501 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

Parity of 8501

8501 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

Is 8501 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 8501 is about 92.201.

Thus, the square root of 8501 is not an integer, and therefore 8501 is not a square number.

Anyway, 8501 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

What is the square number of 8501?

The square of a number (here 8501) is the result of the product of this number (8501) by itself (i.e., 8501 × 8501); the square of 8501 is sometimes called "raising 8501 to the power 2", or "8501 squared".

The square of 8501 is 72 267 001 because 8501 × 8501 = 85012 = 72 267 001.

As a consequence, 8501 is the square root of 72 267 001.

Number of digits of 8501

8501 is a number with 4 digits.

What are the multiples of 8501?

The multiples of 8501 are all integers evenly divisible by 8501, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 8501 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 8501. The smallest multiples of 8501 are:

  • 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 8501 too, since 0 × 8501 = 0
  • 8501: indeed, 8501 is a multiple of itself, since 8501 is evenly divisible by 8501 (we have 8501 / 8501 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
  • 17 002: indeed, 17 002 = 8501 × 2
  • 25 503: indeed, 25 503 = 8501 × 3
  • 34 004: indeed, 34 004 = 8501 × 4
  • 42 505: indeed, 42 505 = 8501 × 5
  • etc.
