∴ 900 is the least square number divisible by 6, 9, 15 and 20
(ii) 8, 2, 15 and 20
Firstly take L.C.M for 8, 2, 15, 20 which is 360
So the prime factors of 360 = 2^{2} × 3^{2} ×2 × 5
To make it a perfect square, we have to multiply the number with 2 × 5 = 10
360 × 10 = 2^{2} × 3^{2} × 5^{2} × 2^{2}
∴ 3600 is the least square number divisible by 8, 12, 15 and 20

Solution:
We know that the total number of soldiers = 8160
Number of soldiers left out = 60
Number of soldiers arranged in rows to form a perfect square = 8160 – 60 = 8100

9. The area of a square field is 60025m^{2}. A man cycles along its boundary at 18 Km/hr. In how much time will he return at the starting point?
Solution:
We know that the area of square field = 60025 m^{2}
Speed of cyclist = 18 km/h
= 18 × (1000/60×60)
= 5 m/s^{2}
Area = 60025 m^{2}
Side^{2} = 60025
Side = √60025
= 245
We know, Total length of boundary = 4 × Side
= 4 × 245
= 980 m
∴ Time taken to return to the starting point = 980/5
= 196 seconds
= 3 minutes 16 seconds
10. The cost of levelling and turning a square lawn at Rs 2.50 per m^{2} is Rs13322.50 Find the cost of fencing it at Rs 5 per metre.

Total cost of levelling and turning = Rs. 13322.50
Total area of square lawn = 13322.50/2.50
= 5329 m^{2}
Side^{2} = 5329
Side of square lawn = √5329
= 73 m
So, total length of lawn = 4 × 73
= 292 m
∴ Cost of fencing the lawn at Rs 5 per metre = 292 × 5
= Rs. 1460

√3 = 1.732, √7 = 2.646, √25 = 5 and √49 = 7
⇒ √25725 = 1.732 x 2.646 x 5 x 7 = 160.41
∴ The square root of 25725 is 160.41
11. 1312.
Solution:
We know that,
1312 = 2 x 16 x 41
So, √1312 = √2 x √16 x √41
From square root table we know,
Square root of 2, 16 and 41 are:
√2 = 1.414, √16 = 4 and √41 = 6.403
⇒ √1312 = 1.414 x 4 x 6.403 = 36.22
∴ The square root of 1312 is 36.22
12. 4192
Solution:
We know that,
4192 = 2 x 16 x 131
So, √4192 = √2 x √16 x √131
From square root table we know,
Square root of 2 and16 are:
√2 = 1.414 and √16 = 4
The square root of 131 is not listed in the table
Thus, let’s apply long division to find it
So, square root of 131 is 11.445
Now,
⇒ √4192 = 1.414 x 4 x 11.445 = 64.75
∴ The square root of 4192 is 64.75
13. 4955
Solution:
We know that,
4955 = 5 x 991
So, √4955 = √5 x √991
From square root table we know,
Square root of 5 is:
√5 = 2.236
The square root of 991 is not listed in the table
Thus, let’s apply long division to find it
So, square root of 991 is 31.480
Now,
⇒ √4955 = 2.236 x 31.480 = 70.39
∴ The square root of 4955 is 70.39
14. 99/144
Solution:
We know that,
99/144 = (9 x 11) / (12 x 12)
So, √(99/144) = √[(9 x 11) x (12 x 12)]
= 3/12 x √11
From square root table we know,
Square root of 11 is:
√11 = 3.317
⇒ √(99/144) = 3/12 x 3.317 = 3.317/4 = 0.829
∴ The square root of 99/144 is 0.829
15. 57/169
Solution:
We know that,
57/169 = (3 x 19) / (13 x 13)
So, √(57/169) = √[(3 x 19) x (13 x 13)]
= √3 x √19 x 1/13
From square root table we know,
Square root of 3 and 19 is:
√3 = 1.732 and √19 = 4.359
⇒ √(57/169) = 1.732 x 4.359 x 1/13 = 0.581
∴ The square root of 57/169 is 0.581
16. 101/169
Solution:
We know that,
101/169 = 101 / (13 x 13)
So, √(101/169) = √[101 / (13 x 13)]
= √101/13
From square root table we don’t have the square root of 101
Thus, we have to manipulate the number such that we get the square root of a number less than 100
√101 = √(1.01 x 100)
= √1.01 x 10
Now, we have to find the square of 1.01
We know that,
√1 = 1 and √2 = 1.414 (From the square root table)
Their difference = 1.414 – 1 = 0.414
Hence, for a difference of 1 (2 – 1), the difference in the value of the square root is 0.414
So,
For the difference of 0.01, the difference in the value of the square roots will be
0.01 x 1.414 = 0.00414
∴√1.01 = 1 + 0.00414 = 1.00414
Then, √101 = 1.00414 x 10 = 10.0414
⇒ √(101/169) = √101/13 = 10.0414/13
∴ The square root of 101/169 is 0.773
17. 13.21
Solution:
We need to find √13.21
From square root table we know,
Square root of 13 and 14 are:
√13 = 3.606 and √14 = 3.742
Their difference = 3.742 – 3.606 = 0.136
Hence, for a difference of 1 (14 – 13), the difference in the value of the square root is 0.136
So,
For the difference of 0.21, the difference in the value of the square roots will be
0.136 x 0.21 = 0.0286
⇒ √13.21 = 3.606 + 0.0286 = 3.635
∴ The square root of 13.21 is 3.635
18. 21.97
Solution:
We need to find √21.97
From square root table we know,
Square root of 21 and 22 are:
√21 = 4.583 and √22 = 4.690
Their difference = 4.690 – 4.583 = 0.107
Hence, for a difference of 1 (23 – 22), the difference in the value of the square root is 0.107
So,
For the difference of 0.97, the difference in the value of the square roots will be
0.107 x 0.97 = 0.104
⇒ √21.97 = 4.583 + 0.104 = 4.687
∴ The square root of 21.97 is 4.687
19. 110
Solution:
We know that,
110 = 11 x 10
So, √110 = √11 x √10
From square root table we know,
Square root of 11 and 10 are:
√11 = 3.317 and √10 = 3.162
⇒ √110 = 3.317 x 3.162 = 10.488
∴ The square root of 110 is 10.488
20. 1110
Solution:
We know that,
1110 = 37 x 30
So, √1110 = √37 x √30
From square root table we know,
Square root of 37 and 30 are:
√37 = 6.083 and √30 = 5.477
⇒ √1110 = 6.083 x 5.477 = 33.317
∴ The square root of 1110 is 33.317
21. 11.11
Solution:
We need to find √11.11
From square root table we know,
Square root of 11 and 12 are:
√11 = 3.317 and √12 = 3.464
Their difference = 3.464 – 3.317 = 0.147
Hence, for a difference of 1 (12 – 11), the difference in the value of the square root is 0.147
So,
For the difference of 0.11, the difference in the value of the square roots will be
0.11 x 0.147 = 0.01617
⇒ √11.11 = 3.317 + 0.0162 = 3.333
∴ The square root of 11.11 is 3.333
22. The area of a square field is 325m^{2}. Find the approximate length of one side of the field.
Solution:
We know that the given area of the field = 325 m^{2}
To find the approximate length of the side of the field we will have to calculate the square root of 325
√325 = √25 x √13
From the square root table, we know
√25 = 5 and √13 = 3.606
⇒ √325 = 5 x 3.606 = 18.030
∴ The approximate length of one side of the field is 18.030 m
23. Find the length of a side of a square, whose area is equal to the area of a rectangle with sides 240 m and 70 m.
Solution:
We know that from the question,
Area of square = Area of rectangle
Side^{2} = 240 × 70
Side = √(240 × 70)
= √(10 × 10 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 7)
= 20√42
Now, from the square root table, we know √42 = 6.481
= 20 × 6.48
= 129.60 m
∴ The length of side of the square is 129.60 m
