How to Find the Square Root of 484?
There are different methods to determine the square root of any number. Click here to know more about it. Square root of 484 can be found using two methods:
 Square Root of 484 by Long Division
 Square Root of 484 by Prime Factorization
Square Root of 484 by Long Division
The square root of 484 can be found using the long division using the below given steps:
 Step 1: First we will pair the digits of the given number starting with the unit's place. Place a horizontal bar to indicate the pairing.
 Step 2: We will find a number which on multiplication with itself gives a product less than or equal to 4. We know that 2 × 2 = 4. Hence, the difference is 0 and the quotient is 2.
 Step 3: Now, we have to bring down 84 and multiply the quotient by 2. This give us 4. Hence, 4 is the starting digit of the new divisor.
 Step 4: 2 is placed at the unit's place of the new divisor because when 42 is multiplied by 2, we get 84. The answer obtained is 0.
 Step 5: Hence, the square root of 484 is 22.
Square Root of 484 by Prime Factorization
484 can also be expressed as (2 × 2 × 11 × 11). The numbers which get repeated within the square root are 2 and 11. Hence, the square root of 484 is 2 × 11 = 22.
Thus, the square root of 484 is 22.

Square Root of 484 Solved Examples

Example 1: What is the difference in lengths of square boxes having area 484 square inches and 400 square inches?
Solution
Area of a square box can be calculated using the formula = length × length
The length of the square box having area 484 square inches is √484 = 22 inches
Similarly, the length of the square box having area 400 square inches is √400 = 20 inches
The difference in lengths of the two boxes is (22  20) inches = 2 inches
Thus, the difference in length of the square boxes having area 484 square inches and 400 square inches is 2 inches. 
Example 2: Is the radius of a circle of area 484π square inches less than 25 inches or more than 25 inches?
Solution
Radius can be found using the area of a circle formula, that is, πr^{2}. From the given information,
πr^{2} = 484π
r^{2} = 484By taking the square root on both sides we get, √r^{2}= √484. We know that the square root of r^{2} is r. The square root of 484 is 22 inches. Hence, the radius of the circle of area 484π square inches is less than 25 inches.
