Is 8963 a prime number? What are the divisors of 8963?

## Is 8963 a prime number?

Yes, 8963 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 8963, the only two divisors are 1 and 8963. Therefore 8963 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 8963 is only a multiple of 1 and 8963.

Since 8963 is a prime number, 8963 is also a deficient number, that is to say 8963 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 8963 without 8963 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 8963

8963 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 8963 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 8963 is about 94.673.

Thus, the square root of 8963 is not an integer, and therefore 8963 is not a square number.

Anyway, 8963 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 8963?

The square of a number (here 8963) is the result of the product of this number (8963) by itself (i.e., 8963 × 8963); the square of 8963 is sometimes called "raising 8963 to the power 2", or "8963 squared".

The square of 8963 is 80 335 369 because 8963 × 8963 = 89632 = 80 335 369.

As a consequence, 8963 is the square root of 80 335 369.

## Number of digits of 8963

8963 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 8963?

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 8963 too, since 0 × 8963 = 0
• 8963: indeed, 8963 is a multiple of itself, since 8963 is evenly divisible by 8963 (we have 8963 / 8963 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 17 926: indeed, 17 926 = 8963 × 2
• 26 889: indeed, 26 889 = 8963 × 3
• 35 852: indeed, 35 852 = 8963 × 4
• 44 815: indeed, 44 815 = 8963 × 5
• etc.
