How to Find Square Root of 179?
Value of √179 by Long Division Method
Explanation:
 Forming pairs: 01 and 79
 Find a number Y (1) such that whose square is <= 1. Now divide 01 by 1 with quotient as 1.
 Bring down the next pair 79, to the right of the remainder 0. The new dividend is now 79.
 Add the last digit of the quotient (1) to the divisor (1) i.e. 1 + 1 = 2. To the right of 2, find a digit Z (which is 3) such that 2Z × Z <= 79. After finding Z, together 2 and Z (3) form a new divisor 23 for the new dividend 79.
 Divide 79 by 23 with the quotient as 3, giving the remainder = 79  23 × 3 = 79  69 = 10.
 Now, let's find the decimal places after the quotient 13.
 Bring down 00 to the right of this remainder 10. The new dividend is now 1000.
 Add the last digit of quotient to divisor i.e. 3 + 23 = 26. To the right of 26, find a digit Z (which is 3) such that 26Z × Z <= 1000. Together they form a new divisor (263) for the new dividend (1000).
 Divide 1000 by 263 with the quotient as 3, giving the remainder = 1000  263 × 3 = 1000  789 = 211.
 Bring down 00 again. Repeat above steps for finding more decimal places for the square root of 179.
Therefore, the square root of 179 by long division method is 13.3 approximately.

Square Root of 179 Solved Examples

Example 1: Solve the equation x^{2} − 179 = 0
Solution:
x^{2}  179 = 0 i.e. x^{2} = 179
x = ±√179
Since the value of the square root of 179 is 13.379,
⇒ x = +√179 or √179 = 13.379 or 13.379. 
Example 2: If the surface area of a cube is 1074 in^{2}. Find the length of the side of the cube.
Solution:
Let 'a' be the length of the side of the cube.
⇒ Area of the cube = 6a^{2} = 1074 in^{2}
⇒ a = ±√179 in
Since length can't be negative,
⇒ a = √179
We know that the square root of 179 is 13.379.
⇒ a = 13.379 in 
Example 3: If the area of an equilateral triangle is 179√3 in^{2}. Find the length of one of the sides of the triangle.
Solution:
Let 'a' be the length of one of the sides of the equilateral triangle.
⇒ Area of the equilateral triangle = (√3/4)a^{2} = 179√3 in^{2}
⇒ a = ±√716 in
Since length can't be negative,
⇒ a = √716 = 2 √179
We know that the square root of 179 is 13.379.
⇒ a = 26.758 in
