NCERT Class 8 Maths Chapter 6 Squares and Square Roots Exercise 6.2

Ex 6.2 Class 8 Maths Question 1.
Find the square of the following numbers.
(i) 32
(ii) 35
(iii) 86
(iv) 93
(v) 71
(vi) 46
Solution:
(i) 32 = 30 + 2
(32)2 = (30 + 2)2
= 30(30 + 2) + 2(30 + 2)
= 302 + 30 × 2 + 2 × 30 + 22
= 900 + 60 + 60 + 4
= 1024
Thus (32)2 = 1024

(ii) 35 = (30 + 5)
(35)2 = (30 + 5)2
= 30(30 + 5) + 5(30 + 5)
= (30)2 + 30 × 5 + 5 × 30 + (5)2
= 900 + 150 + 150 + 25
= 1225
Thus (35)2 = 1225

(iii) 86 = (80 + 6)
862 = (80 + 6)2
= 80(80 + 6) + 6(80 + 6)
= (80)2 + 80 × 6 + 6 × 80 + (6)2
= 6400 + 480 + 480 + 36
= 7396
Thus (86)2 = 7396

(iv) 93 = (90+ 3)
932 = (90 + 3)2
= 90 (90 + 3) + 3(90 + 3)
= (90)2 + 90 × 3 + 3 × 90 + (3)2
= 8100 + 270 + 270 + 9
= 8649
Thus (93)2 = 8649

(v) 71 = (70 + 1)
712 = (70 + 1)2
= 70 (70 + 1) + 1(70 + 1)
= (70)2 + 70 × 1 + 1 × 70 + (1)2
= 4900 + 70 + 70 + 1
= 5041
Thus (71)2 = 5041

(vi) 46 = (40+ 6)
462 = (40 + 6)2
= 40 (40 + 6) + 6(40 + 6)
= (40)2 + 40 × 6 + 6 × 40 + (6)2
= 1600 + 240 + 240 + 36
= 2116
Thus (46)2 = 2116

Ex 6.2 Class 8 Maths Question 2.
Write a Pythagorean triplet whose one member is
(i) 6
(ii) 14
(iii) 16
(iv) 18
Solution:
(i) Let m2 – 1 = 6
[Triplets are in the form 2m, m2 – 1, m2 + 1]
m2 = 6 + 1 = 7
So, the value of m will not be an integer.
Now, let us try for m2 + 1 = 6
⇒ m2 = 6 – 1 = 5
Also, the value of m will not be an integer.
Now we let 2m = 6 ⇒ m = 3 which is an integer.
Other members are:
m2 – 1 = 32 – 1 = 8 and m2 + 1 = 32 + 1 = 10
Hence, the required triplets are 6, 8 and 10

(ii) Let m2 – 1 = 14 ⇒ m2 = 1 + 14 = 15
The value of m will not be an integer.
Now take 2m = 14 ⇒ m = 7 which is an integer.
The member of triplets are 2m = 2 × 7 = 14
m2 – 1 = (7)2 – 1 = 49 – 1 = 48
and m2 + 1 = (7)2 + 1 = 49 + 1 = 50
i.e., (14, 48, 50)

(iii) Let 2m = 16 m = 8
The required triplets are 2m = 2 × 8 = 16
m2 – 1 = (8)2 – 1 = 64 – 1 = 63
m2 + 1 = (8)2 + 1 = 64 + 1 = 65
i.e., (16, 63, 65)

(iv) Let 2m = 18 ⇒ m = 9
Required triplets are:
2m = 2 × 9 = 18
m2 – 1 = (9)2 – 1 = 81 – 1 = 80
and m+ 1 = (9)2 + 1 = 81 + 1 = 82
i.e., (18, 80, 82)

(ii) 7.29
(iii) 51.84
(iv) 42.25
(v) 31.36
Solution:  Ex 6.4 Class 8 Maths Question 4.
Find the least number which must be subtracted from each of the following numbers so as to get a perfect square. Also find the square root of the perfect square so obtained.
(i) 402
(ii) 1989
(iii) 3250
(iv) 825
(v) 4000
Solution:
(i) Here remainder is 2
2 is the least required number to be subtracted from 402 to get a perfect square
New number = 402 – 2 = 400
Thus, √400 = 20

(ii) Here remainder is 53
53 is the least required number to be subtracted from 1989.
New number = 1989 – 53 = 1936
Thus, √1936 = 44

(iii) Here remainder is 1
1 is the least required number to be subtracted from 3250 to get a perfect square.
New number = 3250 – 1 = 3249
Thus, √3249 = 57

(iv) Here, the remainder is 41
41 is the least required number which can be subtracted from 825 to get a perfect square.
New number = 825 – 41 = 784
Thus, √784 = 28

(v) Here, the remainder is 31
31 is the least required number which should be subtracted from 4000 to get a perfect square.
New number = 4000 – 31 = 3969
Thus, √3969 = 63

Ex 6.4 Class 8 Maths Question 5.
Find the least number which must be added to each of the following numbers so as to get a perfect square. Also, find the square root of the perfect square so obtained.
(i) 525
(ii) 1750
(iii) 252
(iv) 1825
(v) 6412
Solution:
(i) Here remainder is 41
It represents that square of 22 is less than 525.
Next number is 23 an 232 = 529
Hence, the number to be added = 529 – 525 = 4
New number = 529
Thus, √529 = 23

(ii) Here the remainder is 69
It represents that square of 41 is less than in 1750.
The next number is 42 and 422 = 1764
Hence, number to be added to 1750 = 1764 – 1750 = 14
Require perfect square = 1764
√1764 = 42

(iii) Here the remainder is 27.
It represents that a square of 15 is less than 252.
The next number is 16 and 162 = 256
Hence, number to be added to 252 = 256 – 252 = 4
New number = 252 + 4 = 256
Required perfect square = 256
and √256 = 16

(iv) The remainder is 61.
It represents that square of 42 is less than in 1825.
Next number is 43 and 432 = 1849
Hence, number to be added to 1825 = 1849 – 1825 = 24
The required perfect square is 1848 and √1849 =43

(v) Here, the remainder is 12.
It represents that a square of 80 is less than in 6412.
The next number is 81 and 812 = 6561
Hence the number to be added = 6561 – 6412 = 149
The require perfect square is 6561 and √6561 = 81

Ex 6.4 Class 8 Maths Question 6.
Find the length of the side of a square whose area = 441 m2
Solution:
Let the length of the side of the square be x m.
Area of the square = (side)2 = x2 m2
x2 = 441 ⇒ x = √441 = 21 Thus, x = 21 m.
Hence the length of the side of square = 21 m.

Ex 6.4 Class 8 Maths Question 7.
In a right triangle ABC, ∠B = 90°.
(a) If AB = 6 cm, BC = 8 cm, find AC
(b) If AC = 13 cm, BC = 5 cm, find AB
Solution:
(a) In right triangle ABC AC2 = AB2 + BC2 [By Pythagoras Theorem]
⇒ AC2 = (6)2 + (8)2 = 36 + 64 = 100
⇒ AC = √100 = 10
Thus, AC = 10 cm.
(b) In right triangle ABC AC2 = AB2 + BC2 [By Pythagoras Theorem]
⇒ (13)2 = AB2 + (5)2
⇒ 169 = AB2 + 25
⇒ 169 – 25 = AB2
⇒ 144 = AB2
AB = √144 = 12 cm
Thus, AB = 12 cm.

Ex 6.4 Class 8 Maths Question 8.
A gardener has 1000 plants. He wants to plant these in such a way that the number of rows and the number of columns remain the same. Find the minimum number of plants he needs more for this.
Solution:
Let the number of rows be x.
And the number of columns also be x.
Total number of plants = x × x = x2
x2 = 1000 ⇒ x = √1000 Here the remainder is 39
So the square of 31 is less than 1000.
Next number is 32 and 322 = 1024
Hence the number to be added = 1024 – 1000 = 24
Thus the minimum number of plants required by him = 24.
Alternative method: The minimum number of plants required by him = 24.

Ex 6.4 Class 8 Maths Question 9.
There are 500 children in a school. For a P.T. drill, they have to stand in such a manner that the number of rows is equal to the number of columns. How many children would be left out in this arrangement?
Solution:
Let the number of children in a row be x. And also that of in a column be x.
Total number of students = x × x = x2
x2 = 500 ⇒ x = √500 Here the remainder is 16
New Number 500 – 16 = 484
and, √484 = 22
Thus, 16 students will be left out in this arrangement.

1296 is a perfect square.

Question 12.
Which of the following triplets are Pythagorean?
(i) (14, 48, 50)
(ii) (18, 79, 82)
Solution:
We know that 2m, m2 – 1 and m2 + 1 make Pythagorean triplets.
(i) For (14, 48, 50),
Put 2m =14 ⇒ m = 7
m2 – 1 = (7)2 – 1 = 49 – 1 = 48
m2 + 1 = (7)2 + 1 = 49 + 1 = 50
Hence (14, 48, 50) is a Pythagorean triplet.
(ii) For (18, 79, 82)
Put 2m = 18 ⇒ m = 9
m2 – 1 = (9)2 – 1 = 81 – 1 = 80
m+ 1 = (9)2 + 1 = 81 + 1 = 82
Hence (18, 79, 82) is not a Pythagorean triplet.

Find the value of x if $\sqrt { 1369 } +\sqrt { 0.0615+x } =37.25$
Solution: Question 21.
Simplify: Solution: Question 22.
A ladder 10 m long rests against a vertical wall. If the foot of the ladder is 6 m away from the wall and the ladder just reaches the top of the wall, how high is the wall? (NCERT Exemplar) Solution:
Therefore, AC = 10 m
Let BC be the distance between the foot of the ladder and the wall.
Therefore, BC = 6 m
∆ABC forms a right-angled triangle, right angled at B.
By Pythagoras theorem,
AC2 = AB2 + BC2
10= AB2 + 62
or AB2 = 102 – 62 = 100 – 36 = 64
or AB = √64 = 8m
Hence, the wall is 8 m high.

Question 23.
Find the length of a diagonal of a rectangle with dimensions 20 m by 15 m. (NCERT Exemplar)
Solution:
Using Pythagoras theorem, we have Length of diagonal of the rectangle = $\sqrt { { l }^{ 2 }+{ b }^{ 2 } }$ units Hence, the length of the diagonal is 25 m.

Question 24.
The area of a rectangular field whose length is twice its breadth is 2450 m2. Find the perimeter of the field.
Solution:
Let the breadth of the field be x metres. The length of the field 2x metres.
Therefore, area of the rectangular field = length × breadth = (2x)(x) = (2x2) m2
Given that area is 2450 m2.
Therefore, 2x2 = 2450
⇒ x2 = 1225
⇒ x = √1225 or x = 35 m
and length = 35 × 2 = 70 m
Perimeter of the field = 2 (l + b ) = 2(70 + 35) m = 2 × 105 m = 210 m.
