## Is 968 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 968 is about 31.113.

Thus, the square root of 968 is not an integer, and therefore 968 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 968?

The square of a number (here 968) is the result of the product of this number (968) by itself (i.e., 968 × 968); the square of 968 is sometimes called "raising 968 to the power 2", or "968 squared".

The square of 968 is 937 024 because 968 × 968 = 9682 = 937 024.

As a consequence, 968 is the square root of 937 024.

## Number of digits of 968

968 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 968?

The multiples of 968 are all integers evenly divisible by 968, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 968 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 968. The smallest multiples of 968 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 968). 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 31.113). 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.
