## Is 982 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 982 is about 31.337.

Thus, the square root of 982 is not an integer, and therefore 982 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 982?

The square of a number (here 982) is the result of the product of this number (982) by itself (i.e., 982 × 982); the square of 982 is sometimes called "raising 982 to the power 2", or "982 squared".

The square of 982 is 964 324 because 982 × 982 = 9822 = 964 324.

As a consequence, 982 is the square root of 964 324.

## Number of digits of 982

982 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 982?

The multiples of 982 are all integers evenly divisible by 982, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 982 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 982. The smallest multiples of 982 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 982). 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 31.337). 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.
