How to Find Square Root of 281?
Value of √281 by Long Division Method
Explanation:
 Forming pairs: 02 and 81
 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 81, to the right of the remainder 1. The new dividend is now 181.
 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 6) such that 2Z × Z <= 181. After finding Z, together 2 and Z (6) form a new divisor 26 for the new dividend 181.
 Divide 181 by 26 with the quotient as 6, giving the remainder = 181  26 × 6 = 181  156 = 25.
 Now, let's find the decimal places after the quotient 16.
 Bring down 00 to the right of this remainder 25. The new dividend is now 2500.
 Add the last digit of quotient to divisor i.e. 6 + 26 = 32. To the right of 32, find a digit Z (which is 7) such that 32Z × Z <= 2500. Together they form a new divisor (327) for the new dividend (2500).
 Divide 2500 by 327 with the quotient as 7, giving the remainder = 2500  327 × 7 = 2500  2289 = 211.
 Bring down 00 again. Repeat above steps for finding more decimal places for the square root of 281.
Therefore, the square root of 281 by long division method is 16.7 approx.

Square Root of 281 Solved Examples

Example 1: Solve the equation x^{2} − 281 = 0
Solution:
x^{2}  281 = 0 i.e. x^{2} = 281
x = ±√281
Since the value of the square root of 281 is 16.763,
⇒ x = +√281 or √281 = 16.763 or 16.763. 
Example 2: If the area of a circle is 281π in^{2}. Find the radius of the circle.
Solution:
Let 'r' be the radius of the circle.
⇒ Area of the circle = πr^{2} = 281π in^{2}
⇒ r = ±√281 in
Since radius can't be negative,
⇒ r = √281
The square root of 281 is 16.763.
⇒ r = 16.763 in 
Example 3: If the area of an equilateral triangle is 281√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} = 281√3 in^{2}
⇒ a = ±√1124 in
Since length can't be negative,
⇒ a = √1124 = 2 √281
We know that the square root of 281 is 16.763.
⇒ a = 33.526 in
