## Is 892 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 892 is about 29.866.

Thus, the square root of 892 is not an integer, and therefore 892 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 892?

The square of a number (here 892) is the result of the product of this number (892) by itself (i.e., 892 × 892); the square of 892 is sometimes called "raising 892 to the power 2", or "892 squared".

The square of 892 is 795 664 because 892 × 892 = 8922 = 795 664.

As a consequence, 892 is the square root of 795 664.

## Number of digits of 892

892 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 892?

The multiples of 892 are all integers evenly divisible by 892, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 892 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 892. The smallest multiples of 892 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 892). 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 29.866). 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.
