What Is the Square Root of 300?
The square root of a number n is written as √n. This number when squared or multiplied by itself results in the original number n. The square root of 300 can be written in multiple ways:
 Radical form: √300 = 10√3
 Decimal form: 17.320
 Exponent form: (300)^{1/2}
Is Square Root of 300 Rational or Irrational?
 300 is a number that is not a perfect square. This indicates that it does not have a natural number as its square root.
 Also, its square root cannot be expressed as a fraction of the form p/q which tells us that the square root of 300 is an irrational number.

Long Division Method
The square root of 300 by long division method consists of the following steps:
 Step 1: Starting from the right, we will pair up the digits 300 by putting a bar above 00 and 3 separately. We will also pair the 0s in the decimal from left to right.
 Step 2: Find a number that when multiplied by itself gives a product less than or equal to 3. In this case, it is 1, so place 1 in the quotient and the divisors place which will result in the remainder being 2.
 Step 3: Drag down 00 beside the remainder 2. 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 200. The number 7 fits here, so place 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. Double the quotient to get the new divisor. The new divisor is 34.
 Step 6: Repeat this process to get the decimal places you want.
Therefore, the square root of 300 = 17.320
Prime Factorization
 To find the square root of 300, we will first express it in terms of its prime factors.
300 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 5.  Next, this can be reduced further to
300 = 2^{2} × 3 × 5^{2}  It is now easy to find the root from here:
√300 = √(2^{2} × 3 × 5^{2})
√300 = 10√3 = 17.320
Therefore, the square root of 300 ≅ 17.320

Solved Examples

Example 1: Jake wants to buy a new painting for his living room. In the store, he finds a square painting that has an area of 90,000 sq. cm. How long is each side of the painting?
Solution:
We know that area of a square is equal to side^{2}. To find the side of the painting, we will have to find the square root of 90,000.
The square root is √90000 = 300.
Hence, the length of each side of the painting is approximately 300 cm. 
Example 2: What is the radius of a circle having an area of 300π square inches?
Solution:
The area of a circle formula is πr^{2}. From the given information, we have:
πr^{2} = 300π
r^{2} = 300
r = 17.3
Therefore, the radius of the circle is ≅ 17.3 inches 
Example: Solve the equation x^{2} − 300 = 0
Solution:
x^{2}  300 = 0 i.e. x^{2} = 300
x = ±√300
Since the value of the square root of 300 is 17.321,
⇒ x = +√300 or √300 = 17.321 or 17.321.
FAQs on the Square Root of 300
What is the Value of the Square Root of 300?
The square root of 300 is 17.3205.
Why is the Square Root of 300 an Irrational Number?
Upon prime factorizing 300 i.e. 2^{2} × 3^{1} × 5^{2}, 3 is in odd power. Therefore, the square root of 300 is irrational.
What is the Square Root of 300?
The square root of 300 is an imaginary number. It can be written as √300 = √1 × √300 = i √300 = 17.32i
where i = √1 and it is called the imaginary unit.
Is the number 300 a Perfect Square?
The prime factorization of 300 = 2^{2} × 3^{1} × 5^{2}. Here, the prime factor 3 is not in the pair. Therefore, 300 is not a perfect square.
Evaluate 16 plus 7 square root 300
The given expression is 16 + 7 √300. We know that the square root of 300 is 17.321. Therefore, 16 + 7 √300 = 16 + 7 × 17.321 = 16 + 121.244 = 137.244
What is the Square Root of 300 in Simplest Radical Form?
We need to express 300 as the product of its prime factors i.e. 300 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 5. Therefore, √300 = √2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 5 = 10 √3. Thus, the square root of 300 in the lowest radical form is 10 √3.
