Is 8887 a prime number? What are the divisors of 8887?

## Is 8887 a prime number?

Yes, 8887 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 8887, the only two divisors are 1 and 8887. Therefore 8887 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 8887 is only a multiple of 1 and 8887.

Since 8887 is a prime number, 8887 is also a deficient number, that is to say 8887 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 8887 without 8887 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 8887

8887 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 8887 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 8887 is about 94.271.

Thus, the square root of 8887 is not an integer, and therefore 8887 is not a square number.

Anyway, 8887 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 8887?

The square of a number (here 8887) is the result of the product of this number (8887) by itself (i.e., 8887 × 8887); the square of 8887 is sometimes called "raising 8887 to the power 2", or "8887 squared".

The square of 8887 is 78 978 769 because 8887 × 8887 = 88872 = 78 978 769.

As a consequence, 8887 is the square root of 78 978 769.

## Number of digits of 8887

8887 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 8887?

The multiples of 8887 are all integers evenly divisible by 8887, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 8887 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 8887. The smallest multiples of 8887 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 8887 too, since 0 × 8887 = 0
• 8887: indeed, 8887 is a multiple of itself, since 8887 is evenly divisible by 8887 (we have 8887 / 8887 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 17 774: indeed, 17 774 = 8887 × 2
• 26 661: indeed, 26 661 = 8887 × 3
• 35 548: indeed, 35 548 = 8887 × 4
• 44 435: indeed, 44 435 = 8887 × 5
• etc.
