## Is 858 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 858 is about 29.292.

Thus, the square root of 858 is not an integer, and therefore 858 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 858?

The square of a number (here 858) is the result of the product of this number (858) by itself (i.e., 858 × 858); the square of 858 is sometimes called "raising 858 to the power 2", or "858 squared".

The square of 858 is 736 164 because 858 × 858 = 8582 = 736 164.

As a consequence, 858 is the square root of 736 164.

## Number of digits of 858

858 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 858?

The multiples of 858 are all integers evenly divisible by 858, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 858 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 858. The smallest multiples of 858 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 858). 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 29.292). 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.
