Multiples of 995 are all integers divisible by 995 , i.e. the remainder of the full division by 995 is zero. There are infinite multiples of 995. The smallest multiples of 995 are:
0 : in fact, 0 is divisible by any integer, so it is also a multiple of 995 since 0 × 995 = 0
995 : in fact, 995 is a multiple of itself, since 995 is divisible by 995 (it was 995 / 995 = 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 995, the answer is: No, 995 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 995). 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 31.544 ). 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.
