2. The following numbers are not perfect squares. Give reason.
(i) 1057

(ii) 23453

(iii) 7928

(iv) 222222

(v) 64000

(vi) 89722

(vii) 222000

(viii) 505050


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.

(viii) It is not a perfect square number because 505050 ends with 1 zero.
