970 is the sum of two squares two different ways:

23² + 21² = 970

31² + 3²= 970

That means 970 is the hypotenuse of more than one Pythagorean triple:

88-966-970 calculated from 23² – 21², 2(23)(21), 23² + 21²

186-952-970 calculated from 2(31)(3), 31² – 3², 31² + 3²

582-776-970 which is (3-4-**5**) times **194**

650-720-970 which is **10** times (65-72-**97**)

Here’s a fun fact: 970 is **2**0**2** in BASE **22** because 2(22²) + 2(1) = 2(484 + 1) = 2(485) = 970

- 970 is a composite number.
- Prime factorization: 970 = 2 × 5 × 97
- The exponents in the prime factorization are 1, 1, and 1. Adding one to each and multiplying we get (1 + 1)(1 + 1)(1 + 1) = 2 × 2 × 2 = 8. Therefore 970 has exactly 8 factors.
- Factors of 970: 1, 2, 5, 10, 97, 194, 485, 970
- Factor pairs: 970 = 1 × 970, 2 × 485, 5 × 194, or 10 × 97
- 970 has no square factors that allow its square root to be simplified. √970 ≈ 31.14482
