In addition we can say of the number 22 that it is even
22 is an even number, as it is divisible by 2 : 22/2 = 11
The factors for 22 are all the numbers between -22 and 22 , which divide 22 without leaving any remainder. Since 22 divided by -22 is an integer, -22 is a factor of 22 .
Since 22 divided by -22 is a whole number, -22 is a factor of 22
Since 22 divided by -11 is a whole number, -11 is a factor of 22
Since 22 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 22
Since 22 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 22
Multiples of 22 are all integers divisible by 22 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 22 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 22. The smallest multiples of 22 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 22, the answer is: No, 22 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 22). 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 4.69 ). 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.
