Find a large number "A" is prime number or not ... ? (Math Prime Number Shortcut tricks by using square root method)

An interesting math shortcut prime number trick. By using this math trick we are able to find a large number "A" is prime number or not just in 30 seconds. (In this Math Shortcut tricks we use a square root method)

Before starting this math shortcuts prime number trick i suggest that you should understand the basic prime number defination and studied other basic prime number shortcut tricks avaliabe are below of this shortcut trick.



Take a list of prime no. less then the sq root (A). Now check the number A is divisible by any of prime number list or not. If number A is divisible by any number of prime number less then sq. root(A). Then the number A is prime number other wise it will be composite number.
Let us apply this amazing Math Prime number shortcut tricks on following examples.


  • Is 313 prime number or not ...? (by Square root Math Shortcut Trick)
  • The square root of 313 is 17.69... (Approximately 18) The prime number less than 18 are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17.
    Because 313 is not divisible by any of them. Therefore 313 is a prime number.
