Exercise 6.3

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

i. $\text{9801}$

Ans: We know that the one’s digit of the square root of the number ending with  $1$ can be $1$ or $9$.

Thus, the possible one’s digit of the square root of $9801$ is either $1$ or $9$.


ii. $\text{99856}$

Ans: We know that the one’s digit of the square root of the number ending with  $6$ can be $6$ or $4$.

Thus, the possible one’s digit of the square root of $99856$ is either $6$ or $4$.


iii. $\text{998001}$

Ans: We know that the one’s digit of the square root of the number ending with  $1$ can be $1$ or $9$.

Thus, the possible one’s digit of the square root of $998001$ is either $1$ or $9$.


iv. $\text{657666025}$

Ans: We know that the one’s digit of the square root of the number ending with $5$ will be $5$.

Thus, the only possible one’s digit of the square root of $657666025$ is $5$.


2. Find the numbers which are surely not perfect squares without doing any calculations.

i. $\text{153}$

Ans: The perfect square of numbers may end with any one of the digits $0$, $1$, $4$, $5$, $6$, or $9$. Also, a perfect square has an even number of zeroes at the end of it, if any.

We can see that $153$ has its unit place digit as $3$.

Hence, $153$ cannot be a perfect square.


ii. $\text{257}$

Ans: The perfect square of numbers may end with any one of the digits $0$, $1$, $4$, $5$, $6$, or $9$. Also, a perfect square has an even number of zeroes at the end of it, if any.

We can see that $257$ has its unit place digit as $7$.

Hence, $257$ cannot be a perfect square.


iii. $\text{408}$

Ans: The perfect square of numbers may end with any one of the digits $0$, $1$, $4$, $5$, $6$, or $9$. Also, a perfect square has an even number of zeroes at the end of it, if any.

We can see that $408$ has its unit place digit as $8$.

Hence, $408$ cannot be a perfect square.


iv. $\text{441}$

Ans: The perfect square of numbers may end with any one of the digits $0$, $1$, $4$, $5$, $6$, or $9$. Also, a perfect square has an even number of zeroes at the end of it, if any.

We can see that $441$ has its unit place digit as $1$.

Hence, $441$ is a perfect square.


3. Find the square roots of $\text{100}$ and $\text{169}$ by the method of repeated subtraction.

Ans: It is already known to us that the sum of the first n odd natural numbers is n2.

For $\sqrt{100}$

  1. $100-1=99$

  2. $99-3=96$

  3. $96-5=91$

  4. $91-7=84$

  5. $84-9=75$

  6. $75-11=64$

  7. $64-13=51$

  8. $51-15=36$

  9. $36-17=19$

  10.  $19-19=0$

After subtracting successive odd numbers from $1$ to $100$ , we are getting a $0$ at the 10th step.

Hence, $\sqrt{100}=10$

For $\sqrt{169}$

  1. $169-1=168$

  2. $168-3=165$

  3. $165-5=160$

  4. $160-7=153$

  5. $153-9=144$

  6. $144-11=133$

  7. $133-13=120$

  8. $120-15=105$

  9. $105-17=88$

  10. $88-19=69$

  11.  $69-21=48$

  12.  $48-23=25$

  13.  $25-25=0$

After subtracting successive odd numbers from $1$ to $169$, we are getting a $0$ at the 13th step.

Hence, $\sqrt{169}=13$

7. The students of Class VIII of a school donated Rs 2401 in all, for Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund. Each student donated as many rupees as the number of students in the class. Find the number of students in the class.

Ans: According to the question, each student donated as many rupees as the number of students in the class.

We can find the number of students in the class by doing the square root of the total amount donated by the students of Class VIII.

The total amount donated by students is Rs. $2401$

Then, the number of students in the class will be $\sqrt{2401}$

$\sqrt{2401}=\sqrt{\underline{7\times 7}\times \underline{7\times 7}}$

$=7\times 7$

$=49$

Thus, there are total $49$ students in the class.


8. Around 2025 plants are to be planted in a garden in such a way that each row contains as many plants as the number of rows. Find the number of rows and the number of plants in each row.

Ans: According to the question, the plants are being planted in a garden in such a way that each row contains as many plants as the number of rows.

So, the number of rows will be equal to the number of plants in each row.

Hence,

The number of rows $\times $ Number of plants in each row $=$Total number of plants

The number of rows $\times $ Number of plants in each row $=$ $2025$

The number of rows $\times $ The number of rows $=$ $2025$

The number of rows $=$$\sqrt{2025}$

$\sqrt{2025}=\sqrt{\underline{5\times 5}\times \underline{3\times 3}\times \underline{3\times 3}}$

$=5\times 3\times 3$

$=45$

Thus, the number of rows $=45$ and the number of plants in each row $=45$.


9. Find the smallest square number that is divisible by each of the numbers $\text{4,9}$ and $\text{10}$.

Ans: We know that the number that is perfectly divisible by each one of $4,9$ and $10$ is their L.C.M

So, taking the L.C.M of these numbers 

$2$

$4,9,10$

$2$

$2,9,5$

$3$

$1,9,5$

$3$

$1,3,5$

$5$

$1,1,5$


$1,1,1$

L.C.M$=2\times 2\times 3\times 3\times 5$

$=180$

It can be clearly seen that $5$ cannot be paired.

Therefore, we have to multiply $180$ by $5$ in order to get a perfect square.

Thus, the smallest square number divisible by $4,9$ and $10$$=180\times 5=900$


10. Find the smallest square number that is divisible by each of the numbers $\text{8,15}$ and $\text{20}$.

Ans: We know that the number that is perfectly divisible by each one of $8,15$ and $20$ is their L.C.M

So, taking the L.C.M of these numbers 

$2$

$8,15,20$

$2$

$4,15,10$

$2$

$2,15,5$

$3$

$1,15,5$

$5$

$1,5,5$


$1,1,1$

L.C.M$=2\times 2\times 2\times 3\times 5$

$=120$

It can be clearly seen that the prime factors $2$, $3$ and $5$ cannot be paired.

Therefore, we have to multiply $120$ by $2$, $3$ and $5$ in order to get a perfect square.

Thus, the smallest square number divisible by $8, 15$ and $20$ is $120\times 2\times 3\times 5 = 3600$


What do you learn from Exercise 6.3 Class 8 Maths?

CBSE Class 8 Maths introduces students to squares and square roots in the 6th lesson. In this chapter students get to learn everything about squaring a number, how to derive the square root value of a number, perfect squares, what are perfect squares, properties of square numbers and so on. To get a good grasp over the lesson students may proceed to complete the NCERT Maths Class 8, ex. 6.3 exercises. If you have completed the previous chapter on exponents, then it may not be difficult to understand the problems in exercise 6.3 Class 8 NCERT.

Squares and square roots are one of the most important lessons in Class 8 Mathematics because the chapter not only contributes to advanced Mathematics that you shall study in the future but other Science subjects as well. Squares and square roots are one of the few Mathematical formulae that are applied in algebraic, geometric and trigonometric problems too. Ex 6.3 Class 8 Maths covers some of the most important patterns in square and square root problems. This section covers common and uncommon problems related to the sub-sections and theorems mentioned above.

For instance, a problem from section 6.3 may ask you to find out which among a group of numbers is a perfect square. The NCERT exercise book contains ten sums on the subject, under section 6.3.
