27is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 27 are all the numbers between -27 and 27 , which divide 27 without leaving any remainder. Since 27 divided by -27 is an integer, -27 is a factor of 27 .
Since 27 divided by -27 is a whole number, -27 is a factor of 27
Since 27 divided by -9 is a whole number, -9 is a factor of 27
Since 27 divided by -3 is a whole number, -3 is a factor of 27
Since 27 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 27
Multiples of 27 are all integers divisible by 27 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 27 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 27. The smallest multiples of 27 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 27, the answer is: No, 27 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 27). 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 5.196 ). 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.
