How to Find Square Root of 248?
Value of √248 by Long Division Method
Explanation:
 Forming pairs: 02 and 48
 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 48, to the right of the remainder 1. The new dividend is now 148.
 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 5) such that 2Z × Z <= 148. After finding Z, together 2 and Z (5) form a new divisor 25 for the new dividend 148.
 Divide 148 by 25 with the quotient as 5, giving the remainder = 148  25 × 5 = 148  125 = 23.
 Now, let's find the decimal places after the quotient 15.
 Bring down 00 to the right of this remainder 23. The new dividend is now 2300.
 Add the last digit of quotient to divisor i.e. 5 + 25 = 30. To the right of 30, find a digit Z (which is 7) such that 30Z × Z <= 2300. Together they form a new divisor (307) for the new dividend (2300).
 Divide 2300 by 307 with the quotient as 7, giving the remainder = 2300  307 × 7 = 2300  2149 = 151.
 Bring down 00 again. Repeat above steps for finding more decimal places for the square root of 248.
Therefore, the square root of 248 by long division method is 15.7 approximately.

Square Root of 248 Solved Examples

Example 1: Solve the equation x^{2} − 248 = 0
Solution:
x^{2}  248 = 0 i.e. x^{2} = 248
x = ±√248
Since the value of the square root of 248 is 15.748,
⇒ x = +√248 or √248 = 15.748 or 15.748. 
Example 2: If the area of an equilateral triangle is 248√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} = 248√3 in^{2}
⇒ a = ±√992 in
Since length can't be negative,
⇒ a = √992 = 2 √248
We know that the square root of 248 is 15.748.
⇒ a = 31.496 in 
Example 3: If the area of a circle is 248π in^{2}. Find the radius of the circle.
Solution:
Let 'r' be the radius of the circle.
⇒ Area of the circle = πr^{2} = 248π in^{2}
⇒ r = ±√248 in
Since radius can't be negative,
⇒ r = √248
The square root of 248 is 15.748.
⇒ r = 15.748 in
FAQs on the Square Root of 248
What is the Value of the Square Root of 248?
The square root of 248 is 15.74801.
Why is the Square Root of 248 an Irrational Number?
Upon prime factorizing 248 i.e. 2^{3} × 31^{1}, 2 is in odd power. Therefore, the square root of 248 is irrational.
What is the Square Root of 248 in Simplest Radical Form?
