How to Find Square Root of 212?
Value of √212 by Long Division Method
Explanation:
 Forming pairs: 02 and 12
 Find a number Y (1) such that whose square is <= 2. Now divide 02 by 1 with quotient as 1.
 Bring down the next pair 12, to the right of the remainder 1. The new dividend is now 112.
 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 4) such that 2Z × Z <= 112. After finding Z, together 2 and Z (4) form a new divisor 24 for the new dividend 112.
 Divide 112 by 24 with the quotient as 4, giving the remainder = 112  24 × 4 = 112  96 = 16.
 Now, let's find the decimal places after the quotient 14.
 Bring down 00 to the right of this remainder 16. The new dividend is now 1600.
 Add the last digit of quotient to divisor i.e. 4 + 24 = 28. To the right of 28, find a digit Z (which is 5) such that 28Z × Z <= 1600. Together they form a new divisor (285) for the new dividend (1600).
 Divide 1600 by 285 with the quotient as 5, giving the remainder = 1600  285 × 5 = 1600  1425 = 175.
 Bring down 00 again. Repeat above steps for finding more decimal places for the square root of 212.
Therefore, the square root of 212 by long division method is 14.5 approximately.

Square Root of 212 Solved Examples

Example 1: Solve the equation x^{2} − 212 = 0
Solution:
x^{2}  212 = 0 i.e. x^{2} = 212
x = ±√212
Since the value of the square root of 212 is 14.560,
⇒ x = +√212 or √212 = 14.560 or 14.560. 
Example 2: If the surface area of a cube is 1272 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} = 1272 in^{2}
⇒ a = ±√212 in
Since length can't be negative,
⇒ a = √212
We know that the square root of 212 is 14.560.
⇒ a = 14.560 in 
Example 3: If the area of a circle is 212π in^{2}. Find the radius of the circle.
Solution:
Let 'r' be the radius of the circle.
⇒ Area of the circle = πr^{2} = 212π in^{2}
⇒ r = ±√212 in
Since radius can't be negative,
⇒ r = √212
The square root of 212 is 14.560.
⇒ r = 14.560 in
