In addition we can say of the number 34 that it is even
34 is an even number, as it is divisible by 2 : 34/2 = 17
The factors for 34 are all the numbers between -34 and 34 , which divide 34 without leaving any remainder. Since 34 divided by -34 is an integer, -34 is a factor of 34 .
Since 34 divided by -34 is a whole number, -34 is a factor of 34
Since 34 divided by -17 is a whole number, -17 is a factor of 34
Since 34 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 34
Since 34 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 34
Multiples of 34 are all integers divisible by 34 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 34 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 34. The smallest multiples of 34 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 34, the answer is: No, 34 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 34). 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 5.831 ). 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.
