191is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 191 are all the numbers between -191 and 191 , which divide 191 without leaving any remainder. Since 191 divided by -191 is an integer, -191 is a factor of 191 .
Since 191 divided by -191 is a whole number, -191 is a factor of 191
Since 191 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 191
Since 191 divided by 1 is a whole number, 1 is a factor of 191
Multiples of 191 are all integers divisible by 191 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 191 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 191. The smallest multiples of 191 are:
0 : in fact, 0 is divisible by any integer, so it is also a multiple of 191 since 0 × 191 = 0
191 : in fact, 191 is a multiple of itself, since 191 is divisible by 191 (it was 191 / 191 = 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 191, the answer is: yes, 191 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (191).
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 191). 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 13.82 ). 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.
