What is The Square Root of 58?
 The square root of 58 is √58 = 7.6157.
 The number 58 has only two factors that are prime too. So, it cannot be simplified further using prime factorization.
 The number 58 is not a perfect square as its square root is not an integer.
Is Square Root of 58 Rational or Irrational?
The square root of 58 is a nonterminating and nonrepeating number. So, the square root of 58 is an irrational number as it cannot be expressed in the form of p/q where q ≠ 0.
How to Find the Square root of 58?
Now we will calculate the square root of 58 using the following methods:
Square Root of 58 Using Approximation Method
 First, find two consecutive perfect squares between which the number 58 will lie. The two numbers are 49 (7^{2}) and 64 (8^{2}). Therefore, the whole number part of the square root of 58 will be 7.
 Now, for the decimal part, we will use the belowmentioned formula: (Given number – Smaller perfect square) / (Greater perfect square – smaller perfect square) = (58  49)/(64  49) = 9/15 = 0.60
 Hence, the square root of 58 via the approximation method is 7.60.
Square Root of 58 By Long Division
We will now calculate the square root of 58 by the long division method with the help of the belowgiven steps.
 Start Grouping the digits from the right side in pairs of two by putting a bar on top of them. We get one pair in this case (58).
 Find a number(n) which when multiplied with itself n × n ≤ 58. So, n will be 7 as 7 × 7 = 49.
 Now we get the remainder 9 (as 58  49 = 9) and the quotient as 7. Also, we have to add the divisor n with itself to get the new divisor. The new divisor here will be 14.
 Add a decimal in the dividend and quotient part simultaneously. Also, add 3 pairs of zero in the dividend part.
 Bring down the pair of zero. So, our new dividend is 900. Now find a number(m) such that 14m × m ≤ 900. The number m will be 6 as 146 × 6 = 876 ≤ 900.
 Repeat the above step for all the pairs of zero.
So, we get the square root of √58 = 7.615 by the long division method.

Square Root of 58 Solved Examples

Example 1: Dave wants to find out the square root of 58. Can you help Dave?
Solution:
The square root of negative numbers is an imaginary number. Because the square of any number (positive or negative) will result in a positive number. So, the square of 58 is written as √58 = ±7.615i (where i = √1).

Example 2: How much minimum area in square feet should be removed from land with a surface area of 58 square feet, such that it can be converted into a garden of square shape with a length of its side as an integer?
Solution:
To make the land of area 58 square feet into a perfect square we should subtract it with a number (a) such that 58  a = 49 (closest perfect square). Therefore, a = 58  49 = 9 square feet.
