221is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 221 are all the numbers between -221 and 221 , which divide 221 without leaving any remainder. Since 221 divided by -221 is an integer, -221 is a factor of 221 .
Since 221 divided by -221 is a whole number, -221 is a factor of 221
Since 221 divided by -17 is a whole number, -17 is a factor of 221
Since 221 divided by -13 is a whole number, -13 is a factor of 221
Since 221 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 221
Multiples of 221 are all integers divisible by 221 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 221 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 221. The smallest multiples of 221 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 221, the answer is: No, 221 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 221). 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 14.866 ). 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.
