In addition we can say of the number 62 that it is even
62 is an even number, as it is divisible by 2 : 62/2 = 31
The factors for 62 are all the numbers between -62 and 62 , which divide 62 without leaving any remainder. Since 62 divided by -62 is an integer, -62 is a factor of 62 .
Since 62 divided by -62 is a whole number, -62 is a factor of 62
Since 62 divided by -31 is a whole number, -31 is a factor of 62
Since 62 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 62
Since 62 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 62
Multiples of 62 are all integers divisible by 62 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 62 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 62. The smallest multiples of 62 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 62, the answer is: No, 62 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 62). 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 7.874 ). 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.
