## Is 883 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 883 is about 29.715.

Thus, the square root of 883 is not an integer, and therefore 883 is not a square number.

Anyway, 883 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 883?

The square of a number (here 883) is the result of the product of this number (883) by itself (i.e., 883 × 883); the square of 883 is sometimes called "raising 883 to the power 2", or "883 squared".

The square of 883 is 779 689 because 883 × 883 = 8832 = 779 689.

As a consequence, 883 is the square root of 779 689.

## Number of digits of 883

883 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 883?

The multiples of 883 are all integers evenly divisible by 883, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 883 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 883. The smallest multiples of 883 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 883). 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 29.715). 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.
