127is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 127 are all the numbers between -127 and 127 , which divide 127 without leaving any remainder. Since 127 divided by -127 is an integer, -127 is a factor of 127 .
Since 127 divided by -127 is a whole number, -127 is a factor of 127
Since 127 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 127
Since 127 divided by 1 is a whole number, 1 is a factor of 127
Multiples of 127 are all integers divisible by 127 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 127 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 127. The smallest multiples of 127 are:
0 : in fact, 0 is divisible by any integer, so it is also a multiple of 127 since 0 × 127 = 0
127 : in fact, 127 is a multiple of itself, since 127 is divisible by 127 (it was 127 / 127 = 1, so the rest of this division is zero)
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 127, the answer is: yes, 127 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (127).
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 127). 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 11.269 ). 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.
