Since 238 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 238
Since 238 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 238
Multiples of 238 are all integers divisible by 238 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 238 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 238. The smallest multiples of 238 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 238, the answer is: No, 238 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 238). 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 15.427 ). 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.
