383is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 383 are all the numbers between -383 and 383 , which divide 383 without leaving any remainder. Since 383 divided by -383 is an integer, -383 is a factor of 383 .
Since 383 divided by -383 is a whole number, -383 is a factor of 383
Since 383 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 383
Since 383 divided by 1 is a whole number, 1 is a factor of 383
Multiples of 383 are all integers divisible by 383 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 383 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 383. The smallest multiples of 383 are:
0 : in fact, 0 is divisible by any integer, so it is also a multiple of 383 since 0 × 383 = 0
383 : in fact, 383 is a multiple of itself, since 383 is divisible by 383 (it was 383 / 383 = 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 383, the answer is: yes, 383 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (383).
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 383). 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 19.57 ). 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.
