## Introduction

“A square-free integer (or squarefree integer) is an integer which is divisible by no perfect square other than 1.”^{1} In other words, its prime decomposition contains no repeated factors; there is exactly one factor for each prime that appears in it. “The number 1 is squarefree by convention.”^{2}

Number | Squarefree | Prime Factors |
---|---|---|

\(0\) | No | \(0\) |

\(1\) | Yes | \(1\) |

\(2\) | Yes | \(2\) |

\(3\) | Yes | \(3\) |

\(4\) | No | \(2^2\) |

\(5\) | Yes | \(5\) |

\(6\) | Yes | \(2, 3\) |

\(7\) | Yes | \(7\) |

\(8\) | No | \(2^3\) |

\(9\) | No | \(3^2\) |

\(10\) | Yes | \(2, 5\) |

### Squareful Numbers

“Squareful numbers are numbers for which at least one prime factor exponent is 2, thus are not squarefree numbers, not to be confused with squarefull numbers, numbers for which each prime factor exponent is at least 2.”^{3}
