In addition we can say of the number 982 that it is even
982 is an even number, as it is divisible by 2 : 982/2 = 491
The factors for 982 are all the numbers between -982 and 982 , which divide 982 without leaving any remainder. Since 982 divided by -982 is an integer, -982 is a factor of 982 .
Since 982 divided by -982 is a whole number, -982 is a factor of 982
Since 982 divided by -491 is a whole number, -491 is a factor of 982
Since 982 divided by -2 is a whole number, -2 is a factor of 982
Since 982 divided by -1 is a whole number, -1 is a factor of 982
Multiples of 982 are all integers divisible by 982 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 982 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 982. The smallest multiples of 982 are:
It is possible to determine using mathematical techniques whether an integer is prime or not.
for 982, the answer is: No, 982 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 982). 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 31.337 ). 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.
