In addition we can say of the number 362 that it is even
362 is an even number, as it is divisible by 2 : 362/2 = 181
The factors for 362 are all the numbers between -362 and 362 , which divide 362 without leaving any remainder. Since 362 divided by -362 is an integer, -362 is a factor of 362 .
Since 362 divided by -362 is a whole number, -362 is a factor of 362
Since 362 divided by -181 is a whole number, -181 is a factor of 362
Since 362 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 362
Since 362 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 362
Multiples of 362 are all integers divisible by 362 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 362 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 362. The smallest multiples of 362 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 362, the answer is: No, 362 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 362). 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 19.026 ). 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.
