## Is 96 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 96 is about 9.798.

Thus, the square root of 96 is not an integer, and therefore 96 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 96?

The square of a number (here 96) is the result of the product of this number (96) by itself (i.e., 96 × 96); the square of 96 is sometimes called "raising 96 to the power 2", or "96 squared".

The square of 96 is 9 216 because 96 × 96 = 962 = 9 216.

As a consequence, 96 is the square root of 9 216.

## Number of digits of 96

96 is a number with 2 digits.

## What are the multiples of 96?

The multiples of 96 are all integers evenly divisible by 96, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 96 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 96. The smallest multiples of 96 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 96 too, since 0 × 96 = 0
• 96: indeed, 96 is a multiple of itself, since 96 is evenly divisible by 96 (we have 96 / 96 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 192: indeed, 192 = 96 × 2
• 288: indeed, 288 = 96 × 3
• 384: indeed, 384 = 96 × 4
• 480: indeed, 480 = 96 × 5
• etc.

## 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 96). 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 9.798). 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.
