# What could be the possible ‘one’s’ digits of the square root of each of the following numbers?

(i) 9801 (ii) 99856 (iii) 998001 (iv) 657666025

**Solution:**

If the number ends with 1, then the one’s digit of the square root of that number maybe 1 or 9

If the number ends with 6, the one’s digit of the square root of that number maybe 4 or 6

If the number ends with 5, the one’s digit of the square root of that number will be 5

(i) 9801

Since the number ends with 1, the one's digit of the square root maybe 1 or 9

(ii) 99856

Since the number ends with 6, the one’s digit of the square root maybe 4 or 6

(iii) 998001

Since the number ends with 1, the one’s digit of the square root maybe 1 or 9

(iv) 657666025

Since the number ends with 5, the one’s digit of the square root will be 5
