Is 9923 a prime number? What are the divisors of 9923?

Is 9923 a prime number?

Yes, 9923 is a prime number.

Indeed, the definition of a prime numbers is to have only two distinct positive divisors, 1 and itself. A number is a divisor of another number when the remainder of Euclid’s division of the second one by the first one is zero. Concerning the number 9923, the only two divisors are 1 and 9923. Therefore 9923 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 9923 is only a multiple of 1 and 9923.

Since 9923 is a prime number, 9923 is also a deficient number, that is to say 9923 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 9923 without 9923 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

Parity of 9923

9923 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

Is 9923 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 9923 is about 99.614.

Thus, the square root of 9923 is not an integer, and therefore 9923 is not a square number.

Anyway, 9923 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

What is the square number of 9923?

The square of a number (here 9923) is the result of the product of this number (9923) by itself (i.e., 9923 × 9923); the square of 9923 is sometimes called "raising 9923 to the power 2", or "9923 squared".

The square of 9923 is 98 465 929 because 9923 × 9923 = 99232 = 98 465 929.

As a consequence, 9923 is the square root of 98 465 929.
