What Is the Square Root of 49?
The square root of 49 is obtained by the number whose square gives the original number.
√49 = 7
The answer obtained on squaring 7 is 49. Hence, 49 is a perfect square.
Is Square Root of 49 Rational or Irrational?
A rational number is a number that can be expressed in the form of p/q, where p and q are integers and q is not equal to 0. We already found that √49 = 7. 7 is a whole number and it can be expressed in p/q form easily. The number 7 is a rational number. So, the square root of 49 is a rational number.
How to Find the Square Root of 49?
We will discuss two methods of finding the square root of 49
 Prime Factorization
 Long division
Prime factorization is a way of expressing a number as a product of its prime factors.
The prime factorization of 49 is 49 = 7 × 7
To find the square root of 49, we take one number from each pair of the same numbers and we multiply them.
49 = 7 × 7
√49 = 7
Square Root of 49 By Long Division
The value of the square root of 49 by long division method consists of the following steps:
 Step 1: Starting from the right, we will pair up the digits by putting a bar above them.
 Step 2: Find a number which, when multiplied to itself, gives the product less than or equal to 49. So, the number is 7. Putting the divisor as 7, we get the quotient as 7 and the remainder 0.
 Step 3: The number 49 is a perfect square.

Square Root of 49 Solved Examples

Example 1: Thomas says that the value of (√49) is the same as (√12). What do you think?
Solution
A negative square root cannot have real roots.
(√49) has real roots but (√49) has only imaginary roots.
Hence, they are not the same. (√49) is not the same as (√49). 
Example 2: Help Ryan simplify the square root of 49 to its lowest radical form.
Solution
We need to express 49 as the product of its prime factors.
49 = 7 × 7
Therefore, √49 = 7
Thus, 7 is the lowest radical form.
