## Is 888 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 888 is about 29.799.

Thus, the square root of 888 is not an integer, and therefore 888 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 888?

The square of a number (here 888) is the result of the product of this number (888) by itself (i.e., 888 × 888); the square of 888 is sometimes called "raising 888 to the power 2", or "888 squared".

The square of 888 is 788 544 because 888 × 888 = 8882 = 788 544.

As a consequence, 888 is the square root of 788 544.

## Number of digits of 888

888 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 888?

The multiples of 888 are all integers evenly divisible by 888, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 888 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 888. The smallest multiples of 888 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 888). 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 29.799). 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.
