841is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 841 are all the numbers between -841 and 841 , which divide 841 without leaving any remainder. Since 841 divided by -841 is an integer, -841 is a factor of 841 .
Since 841 divided by -841 is a whole number, -841 is a factor of 841
Since 841 divided by -29 is a whole number, -29 is a factor of 841
Since 841 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 841
Multiples of 841 are all integers divisible by 841 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 841 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 841. The smallest multiples of 841 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 841, the answer is: No, 841 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 841). 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 29 ). 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.
