823is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 823 are all the numbers between -823 and 823 , which divide 823 without leaving any remainder. Since 823 divided by -823 is an integer, -823 is a factor of 823 .
Since 823 divided by -823 is a whole number, -823 is a factor of 823
Since 823 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 823
Multiples of 823 are all integers divisible by 823 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 823 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 823. The smallest multiples of 823 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 823, the answer is: yes, 823 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (823).
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 823). 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 28.688 ). 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.
