 A number whose square root is a rational number is called a perfect square number. Procedure: Example: Find the least positive whole number with which 125 should be multiplied so that the product is a perfect square, and also find the square root of that product. Solution: Write 125 as product of prime factors. 125 = 5*25 =5*5*5 =(5*5)*5 Therefore, the given number should be multiplied by 5 to make it a perfect square number. The required positive integer is 5. The product so obtained = 125*5 =5*5*5*5 = (5*5)2 The square root of 125*5 is 5*5 √625 = 25. Direction: Solve the following problems. Write 5 examples of your own.
