3001is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 3001 are all the numbers between -3001 and 3001 , which divide 3001 without leaving any remainder. Since 3001 divided by -3001 is an integer, -3001 is a factor of 3001 .
Since 3001 divided by -3001 is a whole number, -3001 is a factor of 3001
Since 3001 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 3001
Multiples of 3001 are all integers divisible by 3001 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 3001 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 3001. The smallest multiples of 3001 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 3001, the answer is: yes, 3001 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (3001).
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 3001). 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 54.781 ). 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.
