We have to subtract 24 consecutive times. So, the square root of 576 is 24.
Square Root of 576 by Long Division
We will now find the square root of 576 by the long division method using the following steps.
 Start pairing the digits from the unit’s place in pairs of two digits by putting a bar on top of them. We have two pairs in this case, 5 and 76.
 Find a number(n) such that n × n ≤ 5. So, n will be 2 as 2 × 2 = 4.
 We get the remainder 1 and the quotient 2. Also, add the divisor n with itself to get the new divisor. The new divisor here will be 4.
 Bring down the pair of 96. So, the new dividend is 176.
 Find a number(m) such that 4m × m ≤ 176. So, we get n = 4 as 44 × 4 = 176.
So, we get the square root of √576 = 24 by the long division method.

Square Root of 576 Solved Examples

Example 1: Samuel wants to find the square root of 576 by the prime factorization method. Can you help Samuel?
Solution:
Prime factorization of 576: 2^{6} × 3^{2}
Prime factors of 576 in pairs: (2 × 2) × (2 × 2) × (2 × 2) × (3 × 3)
Square root of 576: √((2 × 2)^{3} × (3 × 3)) = (2)^{3 }× 3 = ±24
Therefore, √576 = ±24

Example 2: Greg wants to know the value of √√576. Can you help Greg to find it out?
Solution:
The Square root of 576 is √576 = 24
Now the prime factorization of 24 = 2^{3} × 3
The square root 24 is (24)^{1/2} = ((2)^{3} × 3)^{1/2} = 2 × (2 × 3)^{1/2} = 2√6 
Example 3: A squareshaped construction site with an area of 576 square yards wants to build a road around the facility such that they have 484 square yards area left for construction. What will be the width of the road?
Solution:
The initial area of the construction site = 576
Length of one side of site = √576 = 24 yards
The final area of the site available for construction = 484
So, the length of one side of the area available for construction = √484 = 22 yards
Therefore, the width of the road around the construction area = 24 – 22 = 2 yards.
