# What Is Half Of 34? What Is Half Of 34?

Well, 17 is half of 34.

and people get this wrong all the time! Did you know that it’s also incorrect to say ‘half past’ anything? for example—it is incorrect to say ‘half-past nine. Instead, it would be best if you said ‘nine-thirty.’ (the Indian Railway timetables were the guiltiest party in using ‘half past’ all the time).

Two different words mean 1/2 – one is pronounced with a long sound and the other with a short sound.

### What is half of 342?

Half of 342 is 171.

This is because 342 can be divided by 2, 3, and 6. When a number can be evenly divided by more than two numbers, it is a “composite number.” There are only a finite amount of composite numbers because once a number can be divided by all the smaller numbers up to its square root (the smallest whole number that is a multiple of the number), it is said to be “prime.” For example, the prime numbers up to 100 are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67.

### What is half of 345?

Half of 345 is 173.5.

In mathematics, the number 345 has four factors (2, 3, 5, and 15), so it can be divided by more than two numbers.

Here is a list of all the factors: 2 x 171, 3 x 65 , 5 x 33 , 15 x 17 . So if we have a number that can be evenly divided by four numbers, it is called a “composite” or “multiple” number. The number must be at least four digits to list all its factors like this; something with only one or two digits wouldn’t work too well!

I am trying to make here that numbers divisible by —2 and 3 are called “even” numbers, while those divisible by 2, 3, and 5 are called “odd” numbers.

A prime number would be divisible only by one and itself.
