Is 8821 a prime number? What are the divisors of 8821?

## Is 8821 a prime number?

Yes, 8821 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 8821, the only two divisors are 1 and 8821. Therefore 8821 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 8821 is only a multiple of 1 and 8821.

Since 8821 is a prime number, 8821 is also a deficient number, that is to say 8821 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 8821 without 8821 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 8821

8821 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 8821 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 8821 is about 93.920.

Thus, the square root of 8821 is not an integer, and therefore 8821 is not a square number.

Anyway, 8821 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 8821?

The square of a number (here 8821) is the result of the product of this number (8821) by itself (i.e., 8821 × 8821); the square of 8821 is sometimes called "raising 8821 to the power 2", or "8821 squared".

The square of 8821 is 77 810 041 because 8821 × 8821 = 88212 = 77 810 041.

As a consequence, 8821 is the square root of 77 810 041.

## Number of digits of 8821

8821 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 8821?

The multiples of 8821 are all integers evenly divisible by 8821, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 8821 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 8821. The smallest multiples of 8821 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 8821 too, since 0 × 8821 = 0
• 8821: indeed, 8821 is a multiple of itself, since 8821 is evenly divisible by 8821 (we have 8821 / 8821 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 17 642: indeed, 17 642 = 8821 × 2
• 26 463: indeed, 26 463 = 8821 × 3
• 35 284: indeed, 35 284 = 8821 × 4
• 44 105: indeed, 44 105 = 8821 × 5
• etc.
