Is 8923 a prime number? What are the divisors of 8923?

## Is 8923 a prime number?

Yes, 8923 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 8923, the only two divisors are 1 and 8923. Therefore 8923 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 8923 is only a multiple of 1 and 8923.

Since 8923 is a prime number, 8923 is also a deficient number, that is to say 8923 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 8923 without 8923 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 8923

8923 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 8923 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 8923 is about 94.462.

Thus, the square root of 8923 is not an integer, and therefore 8923 is not a square number.

Anyway, 8923 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 8923?

The square of a number (here 8923) is the result of the product of this number (8923) by itself (i.e., 8923 × 8923); the square of 8923 is sometimes called "raising 8923 to the power 2", or "8923 squared".

The square of 8923 is 79 619 929 because 8923 × 8923 = 89232 = 79 619 929.

As a consequence, 8923 is the square root of 79 619 929.

## Number of digits of 8923

8923 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 8923?

The multiples of 8923 are all integers evenly divisible by 8923, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 8923 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 8923. The smallest multiples of 8923 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 8923 too, since 0 × 8923 = 0
• 8923: indeed, 8923 is a multiple of itself, since 8923 is evenly divisible by 8923 (we have 8923 / 8923 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 17 846: indeed, 17 846 = 8923 × 2
• 26 769: indeed, 26 769 = 8923 × 3
• 35 692: indeed, 35 692 = 8923 × 4
• 44 615: indeed, 44 615 = 8923 × 5
• etc.
