49is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 49 are all the numbers between -49 and 49 , which divide 49 without leaving any remainder. Since 49 divided by -49 is an integer, -49 is a factor of 49 .
Since 49 divided by -49 is a whole number, -49 is a factor of 49
Since 49 divided by -7 is a whole number, -7 is a factor of 49
Since 49 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 49
Multiples of 49 are all integers divisible by 49 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 49 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 49. The smallest multiples of 49 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 49, the answer is: No, 49 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 49). 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 7 ). 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.
