In addition we can say of the number 106 that it is even
106 is an even number, as it is divisible by 2 : 106/2 = 53
The factors for 106 are all the numbers between -106 and 106 , which divide 106 without leaving any remainder. Since 106 divided by -106 is an integer, -106 is a factor of 106 .
Since 106 divided by -106 is a whole number, -106 is a factor of 106
Since 106 divided by -53 is a whole number, -53 is a factor of 106
Since 106 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 106
Since 106 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 106
Multiples of 106 are all integers divisible by 106 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 106 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 106. The smallest multiples of 106 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 106, the answer is: No, 106 is not a prime number.
To know the primality of an integer, we can use several algorithms. The most naive is to try all divisors below the number you want to know if it is prime (in our case 106). We can already eliminate even numbers bigger than 2 (then 4 , 6 , 8 ...). Besides, we can stop at the square root of the number in question (here 10.296 ). Historically, the Eratosthenes screen (which dates back to Antiquity) uses this technique relatively effectively.
More modern techniques include the Atkin screen, probabilistic tests, or the cyclotomic test.
