In addition we can say of the number 26 that it is even
26 is an even number, as it is divisible by 2 : 26/2 = 13
The factors for 26 are all the numbers between -26 and 26 , which divide 26 without leaving any remainder. Since 26 divided by -26 is an integer, -26 is a factor of 26 .
Since 26 divided by -26 is a whole number, -26 is a factor of 26
Since 26 divided by -13 is a whole number, -13 is a factor of 26
Since 26 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 26
Since 26 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 26
Since 26 divided by 1 is a whole number, 1 is a factor of 26
Since 26 divided by 2 is a whole number, 2 is a factor of 26
Since 26 divided by 13 is a whole number, 13 is a factor of 26
Multiples of 26 are all integers divisible by 26 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 26 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 26. The smallest multiples of 26 are:
0 : in fact, 0 is divisible by any integer, so it is also a multiple of 26 since 0 × 26 = 0
26 : in fact, 26 is a multiple of itself, since 26 is divisible by 26 (it was 26 / 26 = 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 26, the answer is: No, 26 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 26). 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 5.099 ). 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.
