In addition we can say of the number 188 that it is even
188 is an even number, as it is divisible by 2 : 188/2 = 94
The factors for 188 are all the numbers between -188 and 188 , which divide 188 without leaving any remainder. Since 188 divided by -188 is an integer, -188 is a factor of 188 .
Since 188 divided by -188 is a whole number, -188 is a factor of 188
Since 188 divided by -94 is a whole number, -94 is a factor of 188
Since 188 divided by -47 is a whole number, -47 is a factor of 188
Since 188 divided by -4 is a whole number, -4 is a factor of 188
Since 188 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 188
Since 188 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 188
Multiples of 188 are all integers divisible by 188 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 188 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 188. The smallest multiples of 188 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 188, the answer is: No, 188 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 188). 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 13.711 ). 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.
