809is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 809 are all the numbers between -809 and 809 , which divide 809 without leaving any remainder. Since 809 divided by -809 is an integer, -809 is a factor of 809 .
Since 809 divided by -809 is a whole number, -809 is a factor of 809
Since 809 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 809
Multiples of 809 are all integers divisible by 809 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 809 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 809. The smallest multiples of 809 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 809, the answer is: yes, 809 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (809).
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 809). 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 28.443 ). 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.
