 # Square Root Of 8

The square root of 8 in radical form is represented as √8 which is also equal to 2√2 and as a fraction, it is equal to 2.828 approximately. Squares root of a number is the number, which, on multiplying by itself gives the original number. Since 8 is not a perfect square, hence the value is represented in root form.

The value 2√2 is said to be surd, as it cannot be further simplified. As we all know, 8 = 2 × 2 × 2, thus we can see the number is a perfect cube of 2. So, we can determine the cube root of 8 which is equal to 2, such as 3√8 = 2. But for numbers which are perfect squares such as 4, 9, 16, 25, etc. the root for them can be determined easily, such as;

• √4 = √(2 x 2) = 2
• √9 = √(3 x 3) = 3
• √16 = √(4 x 4) = 4
• √25 = √(5 x 5) = 5
 Square Root of 8 √8 = 2.82842712475  Or √8 = 2.828 up to three places of decimal

Now that you know the value of root 8, let us calculate its value here. Although finding the square root of a number by using calculators is very easy, but students should know how to calculate it manually.

The square root is represented by the symbol, ‘√’. This symbol ‘√’ is called a radical symbol or radix. The number underneath the radical symbol or radix is called as radicand.

## Method to Find Value of Root 8

To give you an idea, the square of 2 is 4 and the square of 3 is 9. So, the square root of 8 essentially lies between these two digits. But, since 3 square is 9, which is greater than 8, it most probably lies between 2.8 or 2.9. The actual answer for the square root of 8 is 2.82842712475. And this is really close to our estimate. Similarly, you could use this technique to find out square roots of other numbers.

Do you know what the square root of 8 to the power of 3 is? To solve the problem, we need to take the square root of 8. Then, we take that value and multiply by itself 3 times.

So essentially, square root of 8 to the power of 3 = (2.828 x 2.828 x 2.828) = 22.627.

Now, it’s easy to find the square root of 8, and we also learned what square root of 8 to the power of 3 is.
