**Square and Square root class 8**

Squares and square root Both ideas are inherently opposed to one another. Squares are the results of multiplying a value by itself. In contrast, the square root of an integer is a value that, when multiplied by itself, returns the original value.

In the post **“Square and Square root class 8″ ** we have given various type of problems based on square and square root for class 8 students. These questions are essential in building a strong foundation in mathematics and are often included in primary school level examinations.

**Square and Square root class 8(Solved Examples)**

**1)Is 196 is a perfect square ?**

Solution: 196= 2 x 2 x 7 x 7 =

The prime factors of 196 can be grouped in pairs ; 196 is a perfect square .

**2) Is 180 is a perfect square ?**

Solution: 180= 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 =

The prime factors of 180 can not be grouped in pairs ; 180 is a not perfect square .

**3)Find the square root of the following numbers . **

**(i) 7056 **

Solution: 7056 =2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 7 x 7

=

= 84

**(ii) 42.25**

Solution: =

**4) In an auditorium, the number of rows is equal to the number of chairs in each row . If the capacity of auditorium is 1764 ,find the number of chairs in each row. **

Solution: Let the number of rows be x .

Then the number of chairs in each row = x

The total number of chairs in the auditorium =

But the capacity of the auditorium = 1764

=2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 7 x7

=

= 42

Hence, the number of chairs in each row = 42

**5) Find the value .
Solution : = **

=

=

**6) What is the smallest number by which 3528 should be divided to make is a perfect square ?
Solution : **3528 = 2 x 2 x 42

If 3528 is divided by 2 , then 1764 = 42 x 42 , which is a perfect square.

**7) Find the square root of 6.76 .
Solution : **

=

=

=

=

**8) Fin the square root of correct upto 3 decimal .
Solution : **In order to approximate the square root of upto 3 decimal places , we have to calculate the square root upto 4 decimal places.

The square root of is approximated to 1.342 .

**9) What is the smallest number that must be subtracted from 6098 in order in order to get a perfect square ?
Solution: **Square root of 6098

As we are left with 14 as remainder, if 14 is subtracted from 6098, we would get 6098-14 =6084 , a perfect square as .

**10) What is the smallest number that must be added to 7190 to get a perfect square ?
Solution : **Square root of 7190

**The remainder indicates that . As we have to add to 7190 in order to get a perfect square we have to add the difference of and 7190 or 7225-7190 = 35**

Thus if 35 is added to 7190 , we get a perfect square 7225 or .
