iii. ∴ √3481 = 59

iv. ∴ √529 = 23 v.

∴ √3249 = 57

vi. ∴ √1369 = 37 vii.

∴ √5776 = 76 viii.

∴ √7921 = 89

ix. ∴ √576 = 24

x. ∴ √1024 = 32

xi. ∴ √3136 = 56

xii. ∴ √900 = 30

2. Find the number of digits in the square root of each of the following numbers (without any

calculation).64

i. 144

ii. 4489

iii. 27225

iv. 390625

Solution:

i. ∴ √144 = 12

Hence, the square root of the number 144 has 2 digits.

ii. ∴ √4489 = 67

Hence, the square root of the number 4489 has 2 digits.

iii. √27225 = 165

Hence, the square root of the number 27225 has 3 digits. iv.

∴ √390625 = 625

Hence, the square root of the number 390625 has 3 digits.

3. Find the square root of the following decimal numbers.

i. 2.56

ii. 7.29

iii. 51.84

iv. 42.25

v. 31.36

Solution:

i. ∴ √2.56 = 1.6

ii. ∴ √7.29 = 2.7

iii. ∴ √51.84 = 7.2

iv. ∴ √42.25 = 6.5 v.

∴ √31.36 = 5.6

4. Find the least number which must be subtracted from each of the following numbers so as to get a perfect square. Also find the square root of the perfect square so obtained.

i. 402

ii. 1989

iii. 3250

iv. 825

v. 4000

Solution:

i. ∴ √400 = 20

∴ We must subtract 2 from 402 to get a perfect square.

New number = 402 – 2 = 400 ∴ √400 = 20

ii. ∴ We must subtract 53 from 1989 to get a perfect square. New number = 1989 – 53 = 1936 ∴ √1936 = 44

iii. ∴ We must subtract 1 from 3250 to get a perfect square.

New number = 3250 – 1 = 3249 ∴ √3249 = 57

iv. We must subtracted 41 from 825 to get a perfect square.

New number = 825 – 41 = 784 ∴ √784 = 28 ∴ We must subtract 31 from 4000 to get a perfect square. New number = 4000 – 31 = 3969

∴ √3969 = 63

5. Find the least number which must be added to each of the following numbers so as to get a perfect square. Also find the square root of the perfect square so obtained.

(i) 525

(ii) 1750

(iii) 252

(iv)1825

(v)6412

Solution:

(i)  Here, (22)2 < 525 > (23)2

We can say 525 is ( 129 – 125 ) 4 less than (23)2.

∴ If we add 4 to 525, it will be perfect square. New number = 525 + 4 = 529 ∴ √529 = 23 (ii) Here, (41)2 < 1750 > (42)2

We can say 1750 is ( 164 – 150 ) 14 less than (42)2.

∴ If we add 14 to 1750, it will be perfect square.

New number = 1750 + 14 = 1764 ∴√1764 = 42

(iii)  Here, (15)2 < 252 > (16)2

We can say 252 is ( 156 – 152 ) 4 less than (16)2.

∴ If we add 4 to 252, it will be perfect square.

New number = 252 + 4 = 256 ∴ √256 = 16

(iv)  Here, (42)2 < 1825 > (43)2

We can say 1825 is ( 249 – 225 ) 24 less than (43)2.

∴ If we add 24 to 1825, it will be perfect square.

New number = 1825 + 24 = 1849 ∴ √1849 = 43

(v)  Here, (80)2 < 6412 > (81)2

We can say 6412 is ( 161 – 12 ) 149 less than (81)2.

∴ If we add 149 to 6412, it will be perfect square.

New number = 6412 + 149 = 656 ∴ √6561 = 81

6. Find the length of the side of a square whose area is 441 m2.

Solution:

Let the length of each side of the field = a Then, area of the field = 441 m2

⇒ a2 = 441 m2

⇒a = √441 m ∴ The length of each side of the field = a m = 21 m.

7. In a right triangle ABC, ∠B = 90°.

a. If AB = 6 cm, BC = 8 cm, find AC

b. If AC = 13 cm, BC = 5 cm, find AB

Solution:

a. Given, AB = 6 cm, BC = 8 cm

Let AC be x cm.

∴ AC2 = AB2 + BC2 Hence, AC = 10 cm.

b. Given, AC = 13 cm, BC = 5 cm

Let AB be x cm.

∴ AC2 = AB2 + BC2

⇒ AC2 – BC2 = AB2 Hence, AB = 12 cm

8. A gardener has 1000 plants. He wants to plant these in such a way that the number of rows

and the number of columns remain same. Find the minimum number of plants he needs more for this.

Solution:

Let the number of rows and column be, x.

∴ Total number of row and column= x× x = x2 As per question, x2 = 1000

⇒ x = √1000 Here, (31)2 < 1000 > (32)2

We can say 1000 is ( 124 – 100 ) 24 less than (32)2.

∴ 24 more plants are needed.

9. There are 500 children in a school. For a P.T. drill they have to stand in such a manner that the number of rows is equal to number of columns. How many children would be left out in this arrangement.

Solution:

Let the number of rows and column be, x.

∴ Total number of row and column= x × x = x2 As per question, x2 = 500

x = √500 Hence, 16 children would be left out in the arrangement
