What Is the Square Root of 92?
The number which on multiplication with itself gives the product as 92 is the square root of 92. As there is no such integer which on squaring gives 92, the square root of 92 is not a whole number.
Is the Square Root of 92 Rational or Irrational?
On taking the square root of 92, we get 9.591663 (approximately) as the result. The value obtained is a nonrecurring and nonterminating decimal number. Thus, 92 is not a perfect square which also proves that the square root of 92 is an irrational number.
Tips and Tricks:
 For any nonperfect square, the square root of that number will be an irrational number. As 92 is not a perfect square, its square root is an irrational number.
How to Find the Square Root of 92?
We can find the square root of 92 using the long division method.
Simplified Radical Form of Square Root of 92
92 can be written as the product of 2 and 46. It is given as:
√92 = √(2 × 46) = √(2 × 2 × 23) = 2√23
46 is expressed as the product of 2 and 23. The number which gets repeated within the square root is 2. Thus, the simplified radical form of the square root of 92 is 2√23.
Square Root of 92 by Long Division Method
The square root of 92 is found using the long division method. The steps to be followed are:
 Step 1: We start pairing from the right and pair up the digits by placing a bar above them.
 Step 2: We find a number such that on multiplication with itself, the product is less than or equal to 92. Keeping the divisor as 9, we get the quotient as 9 and the remainder 9281 = 11.
 Step 3: Double the divisor and enter it with a blank on its right. Then assume the largest digit to replace the blank. This will become the new digit in the quotient. Now, when the new divisor will be multiplied to the new quotient, the final product will be lesser than or equal to our dividend. Finally, divide and write the remainder. Repeat this process to get the decimal places you want.
Thus, √92 = 9.591

Square Root of 92 Solved Examples

Example 1: What is the length of a square box with area 92 square inches rounded to the nearest tenth?
Solution
The area of a square is given as (length)^{2}.
Hence, area = (length)^{2} = 92 ⇒ length = √92 = 9.59 ≈ 9.6 inches.
The length of a square box with area 92 square inches rounded to nearest tenth is 9.6 inches. 
Example 2: Evaluate (√92 + 2√23)/(4√23  √92)
Solution
As we know, √92 can be simplified as 2√23.
(√92 + 2√23) = (2√23 + 2√23) = 4√23
(4√23  √92) = (4√23  2√23) = 2√23
Thus, (√92 + 2√23)/(4√23  √92) ⇒ 4√23/ 2√23 = 2.
