1801is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 1801 are all the numbers between -1801 and 1801 , which divide 1801 without leaving any remainder. Since 1801 divided by -1801 is an integer, -1801 is a factor of 1801 .
Since 1801 divided by -1801 is a whole number, -1801 is a factor of 1801
Since 1801 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 1801
Multiples of 1801 are all integers divisible by 1801 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 1801 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 1801. The smallest multiples of 1801 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 1801, the answer is: yes, 1801 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (1801).
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 1801). 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 42.438 ). 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.
