Since 66 divided by -22 is a whole number, -22 is a factor of 66
Since 66 divided by -11 is a whole number, -11 is a factor of 66
Since 66 divided by -6 is a whole number, -6 is a factor of 66
Since 66 divided by -3 is a whole number, -3 is a factor of 66
Since 66 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 66
Since 66 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 66
Multiples of 66 are all integers divisible by 66 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 66 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 66. The smallest multiples of 66 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 66, the answer is: No, 66 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 66). 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 8.124 ). 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.
