653is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 653 are all the numbers between -653 and 653 , which divide 653 without leaving any remainder. Since 653 divided by -653 is an integer, -653 is a factor of 653 .
Since 653 divided by -653 is a whole number, -653 is a factor of 653
Since 653 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 653
Since 653 divided by 1 is a whole number, 1 is a factor of 653
Multiples of 653 are all integers divisible by 653 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 653 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 653. The smallest multiples of 653 are:
0 : in fact, 0 is divisible by any integer, so it is also a multiple of 653 since 0 × 653 = 0
653 : in fact, 653 is a multiple of itself, since 653 is divisible by 653 (it was 653 / 653 = 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 653, the answer is: yes, 653 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (653).
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 653). 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 25.554 ). 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.
