Is 8707 a prime number? What are the divisors of 8707?

## Is 8707 a prime number?

Yes, 8707 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 8707, the only two divisors are 1 and 8707. Therefore 8707 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 8707 is only a multiple of 1 and 8707.

Since 8707 is a prime number, 8707 is also a deficient number, that is to say 8707 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 8707 without 8707 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 8707

8707 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 8707 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 8707 is about 93.311.

Thus, the square root of 8707 is not an integer, and therefore 8707 is not a square number.

Anyway, 8707 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 8707?

The square of a number (here 8707) is the result of the product of this number (8707) by itself (i.e., 8707 × 8707); the square of 8707 is sometimes called "raising 8707 to the power 2", or "8707 squared".

The square of 8707 is 75 811 849 because 8707 × 8707 = 87072 = 75 811 849.

As a consequence, 8707 is the square root of 75 811 849.

## Number of digits of 8707

8707 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 8707?

The multiples of 8707 are all integers evenly divisible by 8707, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 8707 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 8707. The smallest multiples of 8707 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 8707 too, since 0 × 8707 = 0
• 8707: indeed, 8707 is a multiple of itself, since 8707 is evenly divisible by 8707 (we have 8707 / 8707 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 17 414: indeed, 17 414 = 8707 × 2
• 26 121: indeed, 26 121 = 8707 × 3
• 34 828: indeed, 34 828 = 8707 × 4
• 43 535: indeed, 43 535 = 8707 × 5
• etc.
