How to Find Square Root of 296?
Value of √296 by Long Division Method
Explanation:
 Forming pairs: 02 and 96
 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 96, to the right of the remainder 1. The new dividend is now 196.
 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 7) such that 2Z × Z <= 196. After finding Z, together 2 and Z (7) form a new divisor 27 for the new dividend 196.
 Divide 196 by 27 with the quotient as 7, giving the remainder = 196  27 × 7 = 196  189 = 7.
 Now, let's find the decimal places after the quotient 17.
 Bring down 00 to the right of this remainder 7. The new dividend is now 700.
 Add the last digit of quotient to divisor i.e. 7 + 27 = 34. To the right of 34, find a digit Z (which is 2) such that 34Z × Z <= 700. Together they form a new divisor (342) for the new dividend (700).
 Divide 700 by 342 with the quotient as 2, giving the remainder = 700  342 × 2 = 700  684 = 16.
 Bring down 00 again. Repeat above steps for finding more decimal places for the square root of 296.
Therefore, the square root of 296 by long division method is 17.2 approx.

Square Root of 296 Solved Examples

Example 1: Solve the equation x^{2} − 296 = 0
Solution:
x^{2}  296 = 0 i.e. x^{2} = 296
x = ±√296
Since the value of the square root of 296 is 17.205,
⇒ x = +√296 or √296 = 17.205 or 17.205. 
Example 2: If the area of a square is 296 in^{2}. Find the length of the side of the square.
Solution:
Let 'a' be the length of the side of the square.
⇒ Area of the square = a^{2} = 296 in^{2}
⇒ a = ±√296 in
Since length can't be negative,
⇒ a = √296 = 17.205 in 
Example 3: If the area of a circle is 296π in^{2}. Find the radius of the circle.
Solution:
Let 'r' be the radius of the circle.
⇒ Area of the circle = πr^{2} = 296π in^{2}
⇒ r = ±√296 in
Since radius can't be negative,
⇒ r = √296
The square root of 296 is 17.205.
⇒ r = 17.205 in
FAQs on the Square Root of 296
What is the Value of the Square Root of 296?
