In addition we can say of the number 398 that it is even
398 is an even number, as it is divisible by 2 : 398/2 = 199
The factors for 398 are all the numbers between -398 and 398 , which divide 398 without leaving any remainder. Since 398 divided by -398 is an integer, -398 is a factor of 398 .
Since 398 divided by -398 is a whole number, -398 is a factor of 398
Since 398 divided by -199 is a whole number, -199 is a factor of 398
Since 398 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 398
Since 398 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 398
Multiples of 398 are all integers divisible by 398 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 398 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 398. The smallest multiples of 398 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 398, the answer is: No, 398 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 398). 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 19.95 ). 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.
