Long Division Method
The square root of 147 by long division method consists of the following steps:
 Step 1: Starting from the right, we will pair up the digits 147 by putting a bar above 47 and 1 separately. We also pair the 0s in decimals in pairs of 2 from left to right.
 Step 2: Find a number that, when multiplied by itself, gives a product less than or equal to 1. This will be 1 obviously, so place 1 in the quotient and the divisors place which will result in the remainder being 0.
 Step 3: Drag down 47 beside the remainder 0. Also, add the divisor to itself and write it below.(1+1=2)
 Step 3: Find a number X such that 2X × X results in a number less than or equal to 47. The number 2 fits here so fill it next to 2 in the divisor as well as next to 1 in the quotient.
 Step 4: Find the remainder and now drag down the pair of 0s from the decimal part of the number. Adding, X to the divisor, the new divisor becomes 24.
 Step 5: Repeat this process to get the decimal places you want.
Therefore, the square root of 147 = 12.124
Prime Factorization
 To find the square root of 147, we shall first express it in terms of its prime factors.
147 = 3 × 7 × 7  Next, this can be reduced further to
147 = 7^{2} × 3  Finally, to find the root of this from here it is very easy,
√147 = √(7^{2} × 3)
√147 = 7√3 = 12.124
Therefore, the Square Root of 147 ≅ 12.124

Solved Examples

Example 1: Mike wants to cover his room's floor with tiles. The floor is squareshaped and it has an area of 147 square feet. What will be the length of the room's floor? Round your answer to the nearest tenth.
Solution:
Let us assume that the length of the room is x feet. Then the area of the room's floor is x^{2} square feet. By the given information:
x^{2} = 147
x = √147 = 12.124 feet.
Hence, the length of the room is 12.1 feet. 
Example 2: Joel knew that 12.124 is a square root of 147. He wanted to know if 12.124 is also a square root of 147? Can you clarify his doubt?
Solution:
Let us take an example of a perfect square number and extend the same logic to clarify her doubt. We know that 6 is a square root of 36 because 6 multiplied by itself gives 36
But what about 6? Let us multiply and check.
6 × 6 = 36, because ( ×  = +). Therefore 6 is also a square root of 36.
Going by the same logic, 12.124 is also the square root of 147.
