123is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 123 are all the numbers between -123 and 123 , which divide 123 without leaving any remainder. Since 123 divided by -123 is an integer, -123 is a factor of 123 .
Since 123 divided by -123 is a whole number, -123 is a factor of 123
Since 123 divided by -41 is a whole number, -41 is a factor of 123
Since 123 divided by -3 is a whole number, -3 is a factor of 123
Since 123 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 123
Multiples of 123 are all integers divisible by 123 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 123 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 123. The smallest multiples of 123 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 123, the answer is: No, 123 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 123). 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 11.091 ). 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.
