(xii) 38 11⁄25The square root of √(38 11⁄25) = √(961/25) = 31/5

(xiii) 23 394⁄729The square root of √(23 394⁄729) = √(17161/729) = 131/27 = 4 23/27

(xiv) 21 51⁄169The square root of √(21 51⁄169) = √(3600/169) = 60/13 = 4 8/13

(xv) 10 151⁄225The square root of √(10 151⁄225) = √(2401/225) = 49/15 = 3 4/15

**Question 2. Find the value of:**

**(i) √80/√405**

**(ii) √441/√625**

**(iii) √1587/√1728**

**(iv) √72 × √338**

**(v) √45 × √20**

**Solution:**

(i) √80/√405= √16/√81 = 4/9

(ii) √441/√625= 21/25

(iii) √1587/√1728= √529/√576 = 23/24

(iv) √72 ×√338= √(2×2×2×3×3) ×√(2×13×13)

As we know the formula

√a × √b = √(a×b)= √(2×2×2×3×3×2×13×13) = 22 × 3 × 13 = 156

(v) √45 × √20= √(5×3×3) × √(5×2×2)As we know the formula

√a × √b = √(a×b)= √(5×3×3×5×2×2) = 5 × 3 × 2 = 30

**Question 3. The area of a square field is 80 244⁄729 square metres. Find the length of each side of the field.**

**Solution: **

Given that,

Area of square field = 80 244⁄729 m2 = 58564/729 m

^{2}Let’s assume L is length of each side then,

L

^{2}= 58564/729L = √ (58564/729) = √58564/√729

= 242/27 = 8 26⁄27

The Length of each side of field is 8 26⁄27 m.

**Question 4. The area of a square field is 30 1⁄4m2. Calculate the length of the side of the square.**

**Solution: **

Given that,

Area of square field = 30 1⁄4 m2 = 121/4 m

^{2}Let’s assume L is length of each side then,

L

^{2}= 121/4L = √(121/4) = √121/√4 = 11/2

The Length of each side of field is 11/2 m.

**Question 5. Find the length of a side of a square playground whose area is equal to the area of a rectangular field of dimensions 72m and 338 m.**

**Solution : **

Given that,

l = 72m , b = 338m

As we know that Area of rectangular field = l × b

= 72 × 338 m

^{2}= 24336 m

^{2}Area of square = L

^{2}= 24336 m^{2}L = √24336 = 156 m

The length of a side of a square playground 156 m.
