Is 984 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 984 is about 31.369.

Thus, the square root of 984 is not an integer, and therefore 984 is not a square number.

What is the square number of 984?

The square of a number (here 984) is the result of the product of this number (984) by itself (i.e., 984 × 984); the square of 984 is sometimes called "raising 984 to the power 2", or "984 squared".

The square of 984 is 968 256 because 984 × 984 = 9842 = 968 256.

As a consequence, 984 is the square root of 968 256.

Number of digits of 984

984 is a number with 3 digits.

What are the multiples of 984?

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 984). 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 31.369). 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.
