Since 258 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 258
Since 258 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 258
Multiples of 258 are all integers divisible by 258 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 258 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 258. The smallest multiples of 258 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 258, the answer is: No, 258 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 258). 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 16.062 ). 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.
