In addition we can say of the number 64 that it is even
64 is an even number, as it is divisible by 2 : 64/2 = 32
The factors for 64 are all the numbers between -64 and 64 , which divide 64 without leaving any remainder. Since 64 divided by -64 is an integer, -64 is a factor of 64 .
Since 64 divided by -64 is a whole number, -64 is a factor of 64
Since 64 divided by -32 is a whole number, -32 is a factor of 64
Since 64 divided by -16 is a whole number, -16 is a factor of 64
Since 64 divided by -8 is a whole number, -8 is a factor of 64
Since 64 divided by -4 is a whole number, -4 is a factor of 64
Since 64 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 64
Since 64 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 64
Multiples of 64 are all integers divisible by 64 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 64 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 64. The smallest multiples of 64 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 64, the answer is: No, 64 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 64). 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 8 ). 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.
