In addition we can say of the number 82 that it is even
82 is an even number, as it is divisible by 2 : 82/2 = 41
The factors for 82 are all the numbers between -82 and 82 , which divide 82 without leaving any remainder. Since 82 divided by -82 is an integer, -82 is a factor of 82 .
Since 82 divided by -82 is a whole number, -82 is a factor of 82
Since 82 divided by -41 is a whole number, -41 is a factor of 82
Since 82 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 82
Since 82 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 82
Multiples of 82 are all integers divisible by 82 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 82 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 82. The smallest multiples of 82 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 82, the answer is: No, 82 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 82). 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 9.055 ). 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.
