(v) 64000

(vi) 89722

(vii) 222000

(viii) 505050

NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 6 Squares And Square Roots

Answer :

For checking a number to be perfect square we need to see the unit's digit or the number of digits repeating from the end of the number given.If the unit's digit is perfect square then it may be a perfect square.Also if the number of digits repeating are odd in number then it won't be a perfect square.So here we have:

(i) It is not a perfect square number because 1057 ends with 7 at unit place.

(ii) It is not a perfect square number because 23453 ends with 3 at unit place.

(iii) It is not a perfect square number because 7928 ends with 8 at unit place.

(iv) It is not a perfect square number because 222222 ends with 2 at unit place.

(v) It is not a perfect square number because 64000 ends with odd number of zeros i.e, 3.

(vi) It is not a perfect square number because 89722 ends with 2 at unit place.

(vii) It is not a perfect square number because 22000 ends with 3 zeros.

NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 6 Squares And Square Roots

Answer :

For a natural number m greater than 1,Triplets are in the form 2m, m2 – 1, m2 + 1

(i) Let

So,here we observe that value of m is not integer.

Now, let us try for

So, here too we have no integer value of m.

Now, let 2m = 6

Other number are:

Hence, the required triplets are 6, 8 and 10.

(ii) Let

So, we observe that the value of m will not be an integer.

Now take 2m = 14

The other numbers of triplets are 2m =

and

Hence the triplets are 14, 48 and 50.

(iii) Let, 2m = 16

The other numbers are

Hence the triplets are 16, 63 and 65

(iv) Let 2m = 18

The other triplets are:

and

Hence we have the triplets as 18, 80 and 82.

(iii) 408

(iv) 441

NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 6 Squares And Square Roots

Answer :

We know that the numbers ending with 2, 3, 7 or 8 are not perfect squares because they don't exist at the end of any square number.

(i) 153 is not a perfect square number because it ends with 3.

(ii) 257 is not a perfect square number because it ends with 7.

(iii) 408 is not a perfect square number because it ends with 8.

(iv) 441 is a perfect square number.

NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 6 Squares And Square Roots

Answer :

Using the method of repeated subtraction of consecutive odd numbers, we have

(i) 100 – 1 = 99, 99 – 3 = 96, 96 – 5 = 91, 91 – 7 = 84, 84 – 9 = 75, 75 – 11 = 64, 64 – 13 = 51, 51 – 15 = 36, 36 – 17 = 19, 19 – 19 = 0

Thus it takes 10 times repetition to reach 0.

So,

(ii) 169 – 1 = 168, 168 – 3 = 165, 165 – 5 = 160, 160 – 7 = 153, 153 – 9 = 144, 144 – 11 = 133, 133 – 13 = 120, 120 – 15 = 105, 105 – 17 = 88, 88 – 19 = 69, 69 – 21 = 48, 48 – 23 = 25, 25 – 25 = 0

It takes thirteen times repetition to reach 0.

Hence,
