Exercise 5.3

1. What could be the possible ‘one’s’ digits of the square root of each of the following numbers?

i. 9801

ii. 99856

iii. 998001

iv. 657666025

Solution:

i. We know that the unit’s digit of the square of a number having digit as unit’s

place 1 is 1 and also 9 is 1[92=81 whose unit place is 1].

∴ Unit’s digit of the square root of number 9801 is equal to 1 or 9.

ii. We know that the unit’s digit of the square of a number having digit as unit’s

place 6 is 6 and also 4 is 6 [62=36 and 42=16, both the squares have unit digit 6].

∴ Unit’s digit of the square root of number 99856 is equal to 6.

iii. We know that the unit’s digit of the square of a number having digit as unit’s

place 1 is 1 and also 9 is 1[92=81 whose unit place is 1].

∴ Unit’s digit of the square root of number 998001 is equal to 1 or 9.

iv. We know that the unit’s digit of the square of a number having digit as unit’s

place 5 is 5.

∴ Unit’s digit of the square root of number 657666025 is equal to 5.

2. Without doing any calculation, find the numbers which are surely not perfect squares.

i. 153

ii. 257

iii. 408

iv. 441

Solution:

We know that natural numbers ending with the digits 0, 2, 3, 7 and 8 are not perfect square.

i. 153⟹ Ends with 3.

∴, 153 is not a perfect square

ii. 257⟹ Ends with 7

∴, 257 is not a perfect square

iii. 408⟹ Ends with 8

∴, 408 is not a perfect square

iv. 441⟹ Ends with 1

∴, 441 is a perfect square.

3. Find the square roots of 100 and 169 by the method of repeated subtraction.

Solution:

100

100 – 1 = 99

99 – 3 = 96

96 – 5 = 91

91 – 7 = 84

84 – 9 = 75

75 – 11 = 64

64 – 13 = 51

51 – 15 = 36

36 – 17 = 19

19 – 19 = 0

Here, we have performed subtraction ten times.

∴ √100 = 10

169

169 – 1 = 168

168 – 3 = 165

165 – 5 = 160

160 – 7 = 153

153 – 9 = 144

144 – 11 = 133

133 – 13 = 120

120 – 15 = 105

105 – 17 = 88

88 – 19 = 69

69 – 21 = 48

48 – 23 = 25

25 – 25 = 0

Here, we have performed subtraction thirteen times.

∴ √169 = 13

∴ We will divide 2800 by 7 to get perfect square. New number = 2800 ÷ 7 = 400

x2 = 7×7×7×7

⇒ x2 = (7×7)×(7×7)

⇒ x= 49×49

⇒ x = √(49×49)

⇒ x = 49

∴ The number of students = 49

8. 2025 plants are to be planted in a garden in such a way that each row contains as many plants as the number of rows. Find the number of rows and the number of plants in each row.

Solution

Let the number of rows be, x.

∴ the number of plants in each rows = x.

Total many contributed by all the students = x × x =x2

Given,

x2 = Rs.2025

10. Find the smallest square number that is divisible by each of the numbers 8, 15 and 20.

Solution:

L.C.M of 8, 15 and 20 is (2×2×5×2×3) 120.

120 = 2×2×3×5×2

= (2×2)×3×5×2

Here, 3, 5 and 2 cannot be paired.

∴ We will multiply 120 by (3×5×2) 30 to get perfect square.

Hence, the smallest square number divisible by 8, 15 and 20 =120×30 = 3600
