449is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 449 are all the numbers between -449 and 449 , which divide 449 without leaving any remainder. Since 449 divided by -449 is an integer, -449 is a factor of 449 .
Since 449 divided by -449 is a whole number, -449 is a factor of 449
Since 449 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 449
Since 449 divided by 1 is a whole number, 1 is a factor of 449
Multiples of 449 are all integers divisible by 449 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 449 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 449. The smallest multiples of 449 are:
0 : in fact, 0 is divisible by any integer, so it is also a multiple of 449 since 0 × 449 = 0
449 : in fact, 449 is a multiple of itself, since 449 is divisible by 449 (it was 449 / 449 = 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 449, the answer is: yes, 449 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (449).
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 449). 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 21.19 ). 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.
