In addition we can say of the number 422 that it is even
422 is an even number, as it is divisible by 2 : 422/2 = 211
The factors for 422 are all the numbers between -422 and 422 , which divide 422 without leaving any remainder. Since 422 divided by -422 is an integer, -422 is a factor of 422 .
Since 422 divided by -422 is a whole number, -422 is a factor of 422
Since 422 divided by -211 is a whole number, -211 is a factor of 422
Since 422 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 422
Since 422 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 422
Multiples of 422 are all integers divisible by 422 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 422 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 422. The smallest multiples of 422 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 422, the answer is: No, 422 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 422). 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 20.543 ). 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.
