(ix) 576     (x) 1024

(xi) 3136     (xii) 900

Ans. (i) 2304

Hence, the square root of 2304 is 48. (ii) 4489

Hence, the square root of 4489 is 67. (iii) 3481

Hence, the square root of 3481 is 59. (iv) 529

Hence, the square root of 529 is 23. (v) 3249

Hence, the square root of 3249 is 57. (vi) 1369

Hence, the square root of 1369 is 37. (vii) 5776

Hence, the square root of 5776 is 76. (viii) 7921

Hence, the square root of 7921 is 89. (ix) 576

Hence, the square root of 576 is 24. (x) 1024

Hence, the square root of 1024 is 32. (xi) 3136

Hence, the square root of 3136 is 56. (xii) 900

Hence, the square root of 900 is 30. ###### 2. Find the number of digits in the square root of each of the following numbers (without any calculation):

(i) 64

(ii) 144

(iii) 4489

(iv) 27225

(v) 390625

Ans. (i) Here, 64 contains two digits which is even.

Therefore, number of digits in square root = (ii) Here, 144 contains three digits which is odd.

Therefore, number of digits in square root = (iii) Here, 4489 contains four digits which is even.

Therefore, number of digits in square root = (iv) Here, 27225 contains fivr digits which is odd.

Therefore, number of digits in square root = (v) Here, 390625 contains six digits which is even.

Therefore, number of digits in square root = NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Exercise 6.4

###### 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

Ans. (i) 2.56

Hence, the square root of 2.56 is 1.6. (ii) 7.29

Hence, the square root of 7.29 is 2.7. (iii) 51.84

Hence, the square root of 51.84 is 7.2. (iv) 42.25

Hence, the square root of 42.25 is 6.5. (v) 31.36

Hence, the square root of 31.36 is 5.6. NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Exercise 6.4

###### 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

Ans. (i) 402

We know that, if we subtract the remainder from the number, we get a perfect square.

Here, we get remainder 2. Therefore 2 must be subtracted from 402 to get a perfect square.  402 – 2 = 400

Hence, the square root of 400 is 20. (ii) 1989

###### We know that, if we subtract the remainder from the number, we get a perfect square. Here, we get remainder 53. Therefore 53must be subtracted from 1989 to get a perfect square. 1989 – 53 = 1936

Hence, the square root of 1936 is 44. (iii) 3250

We know that, if we subtract the remainder from the number, we get a perfect square. Here, we get remainder 1. Therefore 1 must be subtracted from 3250 to get a perfect square. 3250 – 1 = 3249

Hence, the square root of 3249 is 57. (iv) 825

We know that, if we subtract the remainder from the number, we get a perfect square. Here, we get remainder 41. Therefore 41 must be subtracted from 825 to get a perfect square. 825 – 41 = 784

Hence, the square root of 784 is 28. (v) 4000

We know that, if we subtract the remainder from the number, we get a perfect square. Here, we get remainder 31. Therefore 31 must be subtracted from 4000 to get a perfect square. 4000 – 31 = 3969

Hence, the square root of 3969 is 63. NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Exercise 6.4

###### 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

Ans. (i) 525

Since remainder is 41.

Therefore Next perfect square number = 529

= 529 – 525 = 4 525 + 4 = 529

Hence, the square root of 529 is 23. (ii) 1750

Since remainder is 69.

Therefore Next perfect square number = 1764

= 1764 – 1750 = 14 1750 + 14 = 1764

Hence, the square root of 1764 is 42. (iii) 252

Since remainder is 27.

Therefore Next perfect square number = 256

= 256 – 252 = 4 252 + 4 = 256

###### Hence, the square root of 256 is 16. (iv) 1825

Since remainder is 61.

Therefore Next perfect square number = 1849

Hence, number to be added = 1849 – 1825 = 24 1825 + 24 = 1849

Hence, the square root of 1849 is 43. (v) 6412

Since remainder is 12.

Therefore Next perfect square number = 6561

= 6561 – 6412 = 149 6412 + 149 = 6561

Hence, the square root of 6561 is 81. NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Exercise 6.4

###### 6. Find the length of the side of a square whose area is ?

Ans. Let the length of side of a square be meter.

Area of square According to question,  = 441  = =   = 21 m

Hence, the length of side of a square is 21 m.

###### 7. In a right triangle ABC, B =  (i) If AB = 6 cm, BC = 8 cm, find AC.

(ii) If AC = 13 cm, BC = 5 cm, find AB.

Ans. (a) Using Pythagoras theorem,     = 36 + 84 = 100 AC = 10 cm

(b) Using Pythagoras theorem,       = 169 – 25  = 144 AB= 12 cm NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Exercise 6.4

###### 8. A gardener has 1000 plants. He wants to plant these in such a way that the number of rows and number of columns remain same. Find the minimum number of plants he needs more for this.

Ans. Here, plants = 1000

Since remainder is 39.

Therefore Next perfect square number = 1024

= 1024 – 1000 = 24 1000 + 24 = 1024

Hence, the gardener required 24 more plants. NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Exercise 6.4

###### 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?

Ans. Here, Number of children = 500

By getting the square root of this number, we get,

In each row, the number of children is 22.

And left out children are 16. ## NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Exercise 6.4
