Given a number, check if it is a perfect square or not.

Examples :

```Input : 2500
Output : Yes
Explanation:
2500 is a perfect square.
50 * 50 = 2500

Input  : 2555
Output : No```

Approach:

1. Take the square root of the number.
2. Multiply the square root twice
3. Use boolean equal operator to verify if the product of square root is equal to the number given.

## C++

 `// CPP program to find if x is a``// perfect square.``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `bool` `isPerfectSquare(``long` `double` `x)``{``    ``// Find floating point value of``    ``// square root of x.``    ``if` `(x >= 0) {` `        ``long` `long` `sr = ``sqrt``(x);``        ` `        ``// if product of square root``        ``//is equal, then``        ``// return T/F``        ``return` `(sr * sr == x);``    ``}``    ``// else return false if n<0``    ``return` `false``;``}` `int` `main()``{``    ``long` `long` `x = 2500;``    ``if` `(isPerfectSquare(x))``        ``cout << ``"Yes"``;``    ``else``        ``cout << ``"No"``;``    ``return` `0;``}`

## Java

 `// Java program to find if x is a``// perfect square.``class` `GFG {` `    ``static` `boolean` `isPerfectSquare(``double` `x)``    ``{``        ``if` `(x >= ``0``) {``          ` `            ``// Find floating point value of``            ``// square root of x.``            ``double` `sr = Math.sqrt(x);``          ` `            ``// if product of square root``            ``// is equal, then``            ``// return T/F` `            ``return` `((sr * sr) == x);``        ``}``        ``return` `false``;``    ``}` `    ``// Driver code``    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args)``    ``{``        ``double` `x = ``2500``;` `        ``if` `(isPerfectSquare(x))``            ``System.out.print(``"Yes"``);``        ``else``            ``System.out.print(``"No"``);``    ``}``}` `// This code is contributed by Anant Agarwal.`

## Python3

 `# Python program to find if x is a``# perfect square.` `import` `math`  `def` `isPerfectSquare(x):` `    ``#if x >= 0,``    ``if``(x >``=` `0``):``        ``sr ``=` `math.sqrt(x)``        ``# sqrt function returns floating value so we have to convert it into integer``        ``#return boolean T/F``        ``return` `(``int``(sr``*``sr) ``=``=` `x)``    ``return` `false` `# Driver code`  `x ``=` `2500``if` `(isPerfectSquare(x)):``    ``print``(``"Yes"``)``else``:``    ``print``(``"No"``)` `# This code is contributed``# by Anant Agarwal.`

## C#

 `// C# program to find if x is a``// perfect square.``using` `System;``class` `GFG {` `    ``static` `bool` `isPerfectSquare(``double` `x)``    ``{` `        ``// Find floating point value of``        ``// square root of x.``        ``if` `(x >= 0) {` `            ``double` `sr = Math.Sqrt(x);``          ` `            ``// if product of square root``            ``// is equal, then``            ``// return T/F``            ``return` `(sr * sr == x);``        ``}``        ``// else return false if n<0``        ``return` `false``;``    ``}` `    ``// Driver code``    ``public` `static` `void` `Main()``    ``{``        ``double` `x = 2500;` `        ``if` `(isPerfectSquare(x))``            ``Console.WriteLine(``"Yes"``);``        ``else``            ``Console.WriteLine(``"No"``);``    ``}``}` `// This code is contributed by vt_m.`

Another Approach :

1. Use the floor and ceil function .
2. If they are equal that implies the number is a perfect square.

## C++

 `// C++ program for the above approach``#include ``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `void` `checkperfectsquare(``int` `n)``{``    ` `    ``// If ceil and floor are equal``    ``// the number is a perfect``    ``// square``    ``if` `(``ceil``((``double``)``sqrt``(n)) == ``floor``((``double``)``sqrt``(n))) {``        ``cout << ``"perfect square"``;``    ``}``    ``else` `{``        ``cout << ``"not a perfect square"``;``    ``}``}` `// Driver Code``int` `main()``{` `    ``int` `n = 49;``    ``checkperfectsquare(n);``    ``return` `0;``}`

## Java

 `// Java program for the above approach``import` `java.io.*;` `class` `GFG{` `static` `void` `checkperfectsquare(``int` `n)``{``    ` `    ``// If ceil and floor are equal``    ``// the number is a perfect``    ``// square``    ``if` `(Math.ceil((``double``)Math.sqrt(n)) ==``        ``Math.floor((``double``)Math.sqrt(n)))``    ``{``        ``System.out.print(``"perfect square"``);``    ``}``    ``else``    ``{``        ``System.out.print(``"not a perfect square"``);``    ``}``}` `// Driver Code``public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args)``{``    ``int` `n = ``49``;``    ` `    ``checkperfectsquare(n);``}``}` `// This code is contributed by subhammahato348`
