In the page "finding square root by prime factorization method", we are going to learn how to find square root of a number.

The square root of a number is the value such that,when a number multiplied by itself,for example

3 x 3 = 9

3 is square root of 9.

A square root is written with a radical symbol

and the number or expression inside the radical symbol is called the radicand.

(ii) Long division method

- Using this method, first we have to split the given number into prime factors.
- Write those prime factors inside the radical sign instead of the given number.
- Inside the radical sign, if the same number is repeated twice, take one number out of the radical sign.
- Multiply the numbers which have come out from the radical sign.

Question 1 :

Find square root of 324 by prime factorization

Solution :

Step 1 :

Split 324 into prime factors

**Step 2 :**

√324 = √2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3

**Step 3 :**

Inside the radical sign, if the same number is repeated twice, take one number out of the radical sign.

Hence, square root of 324 is 18.

Question 2 :

Find square root of 625 by prime factorization

Solution :

Step 1 :

Split 625 into prime factors

**Step 2 :**

√625 = √5 x 5 x 5 x 5

**Step 3 :**

Inside the radical sign, if the same number is repeated twice, take one number out of the radical sign.

= 5 x 5

= 25

Hence, square root of 625 is 25.

Question 3 :

Find square root of 4096 by prime factorization

Solution :

Step 1 :

Split 625 into prime factors

**Step 2 :**

√4096 = √2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2

**Step 3 :**

Take one common number from the radical

= 2 x 2 x 2 x 2

= 64

Hence, square root of 4096 is 64.

**Step 2 :**

√2025 = √5 x 5 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3

**Step 3 :**

= 5 x 3 x 3

= 45

Hence, square root of 2025 is 45.

Question 9 :

Find square root of 36 by prime factorization

Solution :

Step 1 :

Split 36 into prime factors

**Step 2 :**

√36 = √2 x 2 x 3 x 3

**Step 3 :**

= 2 x 3

= 6

Hence, square root of 36 is 6.

Question 10 :

Find square root of 3136 by prime factorization

Solution :

Step 1 :

Split 3136 into prime factors

**Step 2 :**

√3136 = √2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 7

**Step 3 :**

= 2 x 2 x 2 x 7

= 56

Hence, square root of 3136 is 56.
