631is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 631 are all the numbers between -631 and 631 , which divide 631 without leaving any remainder. Since 631 divided by -631 is an integer, -631 is a factor of 631 .
Since 631 divided by -631 is a whole number, -631 is a factor of 631
Since 631 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 631
Multiples of 631 are all integers divisible by 631 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 631 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 631. The smallest multiples of 631 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 631, the answer is: yes, 631 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (631).
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 631). 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 25.12 ). 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.
