929is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 929 are all the numbers between -929 and 929 , which divide 929 without leaving any remainder. Since 929 divided by -929 is an integer, -929 is a factor of 929 .
Since 929 divided by -929 is a whole number, -929 is a factor of 929
Since 929 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 929
Since 929 divided by 1 is a whole number, 1 is a factor of 929
Multiples of 929 are all integers divisible by 929 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 929 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 929. The smallest multiples of 929 are:
0 : in fact, 0 is divisible by any integer, so it is also a multiple of 929 since 0 × 929 = 0
929 : in fact, 929 is a multiple of itself, since 929 is divisible by 929 (it was 929 / 929 = 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 929, the answer is: yes, 929 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (929).
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 929). 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 30.48 ). 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.
