439is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 439 are all the numbers between -439 and 439 , which divide 439 without leaving any remainder. Since 439 divided by -439 is an integer, -439 is a factor of 439 .
Since 439 divided by -439 is a whole number, -439 is a factor of 439
Since 439 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 439
Since 439 divided by 1 is a whole number, 1 is a factor of 439
Multiples of 439 are all integers divisible by 439 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 439 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 439. The smallest multiples of 439 are:
0 : in fact, 0 is divisible by any integer, so it is also a multiple of 439 since 0 × 439 = 0
439 : in fact, 439 is a multiple of itself, since 439 is divisible by 439 (it was 439 / 439 = 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 439, the answer is: yes, 439 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (439).
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 439). 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 20.952 ). 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.
