## Is 869 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 869 is about 29.479.

Thus, the square root of 869 is not an integer, and therefore 869 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 869?

The square of a number (here 869) is the result of the product of this number (869) by itself (i.e., 869 × 869); the square of 869 is sometimes called "raising 869 to the power 2", or "869 squared".

The square of 869 is 755 161 because 869 × 869 = 8692 = 755 161.

As a consequence, 869 is the square root of 755 161.

## Number of digits of 869

869 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 869?

The multiples of 869 are all integers evenly divisible by 869, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 869 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 869. The smallest multiples of 869 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 869). 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 29.479). 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.
