**Question 4. Give that: √2 = 1.414, √3 = 1.732, √5 = 2.236 and √7 = 2.646, Evaluate each of the following : **

**(i) √(144/7) (ii) √(2500/3)**

**Solution:**

(i) √(144/7)We can write √144 as √12×12 and we will calculate square root of √7

= 2.646 = √(12×12)/ √7

= 12/ 2.646 = 4.535

(ii) √(2500/3)We will find factor of √2500 = √2x2x5x5x5x5, which is equal to 50 and we will calculate square root of √3

which is equal to 1.732 = 50/1.732 = 28.867

**Question 5. Given that √2 = 1.414, √3 = 1.732, √5 = 2.236 and √7 = 2.646 find the square roots of the following : **

**(i) 196/75 (ii) 400/63 (iii) 150/7 (iv) 256/5 (v) 27/50**

**Solution: **

(i) 196/75We have to calculate square root of √(196/75) , we can write it as √(196) / √(75)

Now find the factors of both numerator and denominator, we can write it as:

= √(14×14) / √(3x5x5) = 14/5√3

5√3 is equal to 5×1.732

= 8.66 = 1.617

(ii) 400/63We have to calculate square root of √(400/63), we can write it as √(400)/√(63)

Now find the factors of both numerator and denominator, we can write it as

= √(20×20)/√(3x3x7)

= 20 / 3√7

3√7 is equal to 3×2.646

= 7.938

= 2.520

(iii) 150/7We have to calculate square root of √(150/7), we can write it as √(150) / √(7)

Now find the factors of both numerator and denominator, we can write it as:

= √(3x5x5x2)/√(7) = 5x√3x√2 / √7

5x√3x√2 is equal to 5 x 1.732 x 1.414

= 12.245

= 12.245 / 2.646

= 4.628

(iv) 256/5We have to calculate square root of √(256/5), we can write it as √(256) / √(5)

Now find the factors of both numerator and denominator, we can write it as:

= √(16×16) / √(5)

= 16 / √5

√5 is equal to 2.236

= 7.155

(v) 27/50We have to calculate square root of √(27/50), we can write it as √(27) / √(50)

Now find the factors of both numerator and denominator, we can write it as:

= √(3x3x3) / √(2x5x5) = 3√3 / 5√2

3√3 is equal to 5.196 and 5√2 = 7.07

= 0.735
