149is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 149 are all the numbers between -149 and 149 , which divide 149 without leaving any remainder. Since 149 divided by -149 is an integer, -149 is a factor of 149 .
Since 149 divided by -149 is a whole number, -149 is a factor of 149
Since 149 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 149
Since 149 divided by 1 is a whole number, 1 is a factor of 149
Multiples of 149 are all integers divisible by 149 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 149 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 149. The smallest multiples of 149 are:
0 : in fact, 0 is divisible by any integer, so it is also a multiple of 149 since 0 × 149 = 0
149 : in fact, 149 is a multiple of itself, since 149 is divisible by 149 (it was 149 / 149 = 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 149, the answer is: yes, 149 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (149).
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 149). 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 12.207 ). 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.
