# Is 455 a prime number?

It is possible to find out using mathematical methods whether a given integer is a prime number or not.

For 455, the answer is: No, 455 is not a prime number.

The list of all positive divisors (i.e., the list of all integers that divide 455) is as follows: 1, 5, 7, 13, 35, 65, 91, 455.

For 455 to be a prime number, it would have been required that 455 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

Actually, one can immediately see that 455 cannot be prime, because 5 is one of its divisors: indeed, a number ending with 0 or 5 has necessarily 5 among its divisors.
The last digit of 455 is 5, so it is divisible by 5 and is therefore *not* prime.

As a consequence:

- 455 is a multiple of 1
- 455 is a multiple of 5
- 455 is a multiple of 7
- 455 is a multiple of 13
- 455 is a multiple of 35
- 455 is a multiple of 65
- 455 is a multiple of 91

For 455 to be a prime number, it would have been required that 455 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

### Is 455 a deficient number?

Yes, 455 is a deficient number, that is to say 455 is a natural number that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 455 without 455 itself (that is 1 + 5 + 7 + 13 + 35 + 65 + 91 = 217).
