## Is 896 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 896 is about 29.933.

Thus, the square root of 896 is not an integer, and therefore 896 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 896?

The square of a number (here 896) is the result of the product of this number (896) by itself (i.e., 896 × 896); the square of 896 is sometimes called "raising 896 to the power 2", or "896 squared".

The square of 896 is 802 816 because 896 × 896 = 8962 = 802 816.

As a consequence, 896 is the square root of 802 816.

## Number of digits of 896

896 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 896?

The multiples of 896 are all integers evenly divisible by 896, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 896 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 896. The smallest multiples of 896 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 896). 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 29.933). 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.
