Ex 6.3, 5 For each of the following numbers, find the smallest whole number by which it should be multiplied so as to get a perfect square number. Also find the square root of the square number so obtained. (i) 252 Prime factorizing 252 By prime factorization, 252 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 7 Since 7 does not occur in pair, we multiply by 7 to make it a pair So, our number becomes 252 × 7 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 7 × 7 1764 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 7 × 7 Square root of 1764 ∴ √1764 = 2 × 3 × 7 = 2 × 21 = 42 ∴ The smallest whole number to be multiplied = 7 and square root of new number = 42
