## Is 962 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 962 is about 31.016.

Thus, the square root of 962 is not an integer, and therefore 962 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 962?

The square of a number (here 962) is the result of the product of this number (962) by itself (i.e., 962 × 962); the square of 962 is sometimes called "raising 962 to the power 2", or "962 squared".

The square of 962 is 925 444 because 962 × 962 = 9622 = 925 444.

As a consequence, 962 is the square root of 925 444.

## Number of digits of 962

962 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 962?

The multiples of 962 are all integers evenly divisible by 962, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 962 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 962. The smallest multiples of 962 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 962). 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 31.016). 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.
