What Is the Square Root of 1225?
 The square root is the number (integer) which when multiplied by itself results in the original number.
 1225 = a × a = 35^{2}
 Then a = √1225 = √(35× 35)
 35× 35= 1225 or 35 × 35 = 1225
 The 2nd root of 1225 is +35 or 35.
 This shows that 1225 is a perfect square.
Is Square Root of 1225 Rational or Irrational?
 A rational number is defined as a number that can be written in the ratio of two integers, that is, p/q where q ≠ 0.
 35 and 35 can be written as 35/1 and 35/1.
 Both numbers can be represented in the form of rational numbers.
 So, the square root of 1225 is a rational number.
How to Find the Square Root of 1225?

Square Root of 1225 by Long Division Method
Follow the steps shown below to find the square root of 1225 by the long division method:
 Step 1. Write 1225 as shown in the figure. Pair the number in pairs from the right end by putting a bar on top of them. In the case of 1225, 25 and 12 are the two pairs starting from the right.
 Step 2. Find a number such that when it is multiplied by itself it results in a number equal to or less than 12. Here the number is 3.
 Step 3. We have the remainder and the quotient as 3. Bring down the next pair of numbers. Here it is 25. Our new dividend is 325 and divisor is (3 + 3 = 6).
 Step 4. Choose a number(n) for the unit’s place of the divisor such that 6n × n ≤ 325.
Here the number(n) is 5 as 65 × 5 = 325.
So, the square root of 1225 by the long division method is 35.

Square Root of 1225 Solved Examples

Example 1: Paul wants to find the square root of 1225 using the prime factorization method. Can you help Paul?
Solution:
The following steps can be followed to find the square root of 1225 using prime factorization: Step 1. Determine the prime factorization of 1225
 1225 = 5 × 5 × 7 × 7
 1225 = 52 × 72
 Step 2. Group the prime factors of 1225 in pairs.
 1225 = 52 × 72
 Step 3. Pick one factor from each pair and the square root of 1225 can be written as:
 √1225 = √(52 × 72)
 √1225 = √(5 × 7)2
 √1225 = ((5 × 7)2)1/2 = ±(5 × 7)
 √1225 = ±35

Example 2: Ryan is working on a squareshaped table with a surface area of 1225 square inches. He wants to add a protective layer around the sides of the table. The cost of adding a protective layer per inch is given as $0.50. How much will it cost Ryan to add a protective layer around the table?
Solution:
The surface area of the squareshaped table = 1225 square inches
Length of one side = √1225 inches = 35 inches
Length of protective layer required = 35 × 4 = 140 inches
Cost of adding protective layer = 140 × 0.50 = $70.
