How to Find the Square Root of 243?
Square Root of 243 Using Prime Factorization Method
 Prime factorization of 243: 3^{5}
 Prime factors of 243 in pairs: (3 × 3) × (3× 3) × 3
 Square root of 243: √243 = √((3× 3)^{2}× 3) = (3× 3)√3 = 3√3
Square Root of 243 By Long Division
 Start dividing the digits by drawing a line above them from the right side in pairs of two. In the case of 243, we have two pairs 43 and 2.
 Now, find a number(y) whose square is ≤ 2. The value of y will be 1 as 1 × 1 = 1 ≤ 2.
 We get the quotient and the remainder as 1. Now, add the divisor y with itself and get the new divisor 2y (2).
 Bring down the next pair (new dividend becomes 124) and find a number (d) such that 2d × d ≤ 143. The value of n comes out to be 5.
 Now, add a decimal in the dividend (243) and quotient (15) simultaneously. Also, add 3 pairs of zero in the dividend after the decimal (243. 00 00 00) and repeat the above step for the remaining three pairs of zero.
So, we get the value of the square root of √243 = 15.588 by the long division method.

Square Root of 243 Solved Examples

Example 1: By which smallest number 243 must be divided to make it a perfect square?
Solution:
To make 243 a perfect square we have to make the power of 3 an even number in the prime factorization of 243. And the prime factorization of 243 is 245 = 3^{5}. So, to make it a perfect square we have to divide it by 3 then the power of 3 will be an even number. 
Example 2: What the value of (4√243)/(√27)?
Solution:
The value of √243 = 9√3 and √27= 3√3
Therefore, (4√243)/√27 = (9 × 4√3)/ 3√3 = 12.
