937is an odd number,as it is not divisible by 2
The factors for 937 are all the numbers between -937 and 937 , which divide 937 without leaving any remainder. Since 937 divided by -937 is an integer, -937 is a factor of 937 .
Since 937 divided by -937 is a whole number, -937 is a factor of 937
Since 937 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 937
Since 937 divided by 1 is a whole number, 1 is a factor of 937
Multiples of 937 are all integers divisible by 937 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 937 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 937. The smallest multiples of 937 are:
0 : in fact, 0 is divisible by any integer, so it is also a multiple of 937 since 0 × 937 = 0
937 : in fact, 937 is a multiple of itself, since 937 is divisible by 937 (it was 937 / 937 = 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 937, the answer is: yes, 937 is a prime number because it only has two different divisors: 1 and itself (937).
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 937). 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 30.61 ). 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.
