In addition we can say of the number 116 that it is even
116 is an even number, as it is divisible by 2 : 116/2 = 58
The factors for 116 are all the numbers between -116 and 116 , which divide 116 without leaving any remainder. Since 116 divided by -116 is an integer, -116 is a factor of 116 .
Since 116 divided by -116 is a whole number, -116 is a factor of 116
Since 116 divided by -58 is a whole number, -58 is a factor of 116
Since 116 divided by -29 is a whole number, -29 is a factor of 116
Since 116 divided by -4 is a whole number, -4 is a factor of 116
Since 116 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 116
Since 116 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 116
Multiples of 116 are all integers divisible by 116 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 116 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 116. The smallest multiples of 116 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 116, the answer is: No, 116 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 116). 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 10.77 ). 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.
