# Find the number of digits in the square root of each of the following numbers (without any calculation).

(i) 64 (ii) 144 (iii) 4489 (iv) 27225 (v) 390625

**Solution:**

If a perfect square is of n digits then its square root will have n/2 digits if n is even and (n + 1)/2 if n is odd

(i) 64

n = 2 (even)

Number of digits in its square root = 2/2 = 1

(ii) 144

n = 3 (odd)

Number of digits in its square root = (n + 1)/2 = (3 + 1)/2 = 4/2 = 2

(iii) 4489

n = 4 (even)

Number of digits in its square root = n/2 = 4/2 = 2

(iv) 27225

n = 5 (odd)

Number of digits in its square root = (n + 1)/2 = (5 + 1)/2 = 6/2 = 3

(v) 390625

n = 6 (even)

Number of digits in its square root = n/2 = 6/2 = 3
