Long Division Method
The square root of 216 by long division method consists of the following steps:
 Step 1: Starting from the right, we will pair up the digits 216 by putting a bar above 16 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 2. This will be 1 obviously, so place 1 in the quotient and the divisors place which will result in the remainder being 1.
 Step 3: Drag down 16 beside the remainder 1. Also, add the divisor to itself and write it below.(1+1=2)
 Step 4: Find a number X such that 2X × X results in a number less than or equal to 116. The number 4 fits here so fill it next to 2 in the divisor as well as next to 1 in the quotient.
 Step 5: 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 28.
 Step 6: Repeat this process to get the decimal places you want.
Therefore, the square root of 216 = 14.697.
Prime Factorization
 For finding the square root of 216, we shall first express it in terms of its prime factors. 216 can be expressed as 216 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3.
 This can be reduced further to 216 = 2^{3} × 3^{3}
 Finally, to find the root of this from here it is very easy,
√216 = √(2^{3} × 3^{3}) = 6√(2 × 3) = 6√6 = 14.697
Therefore, the Square Root of 216 ≅ 14.697.

Square Root of 216 Solved Examples

Example 1: Amy wants to calculate the side length of his square garden in her home. It has an area of 216 square feet.
Solution:
Let us assume that the length of the garden is x feet. Then the area of the garden is x^{2} square feet. By the given information:
x^{2} = 216
x = √216 = 14.697
The final answer is rounded to the nearest tenth. Hence, the length of the room is 14.7 feet. 
Example 2: What is the radius of a circle having an area of 512π square centimetres?
Solution:
The area is found using the formula of the area of a circle, which is πr^{2}. By the given information,
πr^{2} = 512π
r^{2} = 216 × 2
r = √2 × √216 = √2 × 14.7 = 20.78 ≅ 20.8
Therefore, the radius of the circle is 20.8 cm approximately.
