Multiples of 886 are all integers divisible by 886 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 886 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 886. The smallest multiples of 886 are:
0 : in fact, 0 is divisible by any integer, so it is also a multiple of 886 since 0 × 886 = 0
886 : in fact, 886 is a multiple of itself, since 886 is divisible by 886 (it was 886 / 886 = 1, so the rest of this division is zero)
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 886, the answer is: No, 886 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 886). 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 29.766 ). 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.
