# Square Root of Number in the Fraction Form

In square root of number in the fraction form, suppose the square root of a fraction $$\frac{x}{a}$$ is that fraction $$\frac{y}{a}$$ which when multiplied by itself gives the fraction $$\frac{x}{a}$$.

If x and y are squares of some numbers then,

### $$\sqrt{\frac{x}{y}} = \frac{\sqrt{x}}{\sqrt{y}}$$

If the fraction is expressed in a mixed form, convert it into improper fraction.

Find the square root of numerator and denominator separately and write the answer in the fraction form.

### Examples on square root of number in the fraction form are explained below;

1. Find the square root of $$\frac{625}{256}$$

Solution:

$$\sqrt{\frac{625}{256}} = \frac{\sqrt{625}}{\sqrt{256}}$$

Now, we find the square roots of 625 and 256 separately.

Thus, √625 = 25 and √256 = 16

$$\sqrt{\frac{625}{256}} = \frac{\sqrt{625}}{\sqrt{256}}$$ = $$\frac{25}{26}$$

2. Evaluate: $$\sqrt{\frac{441}{961}}$$.

Solution:

$$\sqrt{\frac{441}{961}} = \frac{\sqrt{441}}{\sqrt{961}}$$

Now, we find the square roots of 441 and 961 separately.

Thus, √441 = 21 and √961 = 31

⇒ $$\sqrt{\frac{441}{961}}$$ = $$\frac{\sqrt{441}}{\sqrt{961}}$$ = $$\frac{21}{31}$$

3. Find the values of $$\sqrt{\frac{7}{2}}$$ up to 3 decimal places.

Solution:

To make the denominator a perfect square, multiply the numerator and denominator by √2.

Therefore, $$\frac{\sqrt{7} \times \sqrt{2}}{\sqrt{2} \times \sqrt{2}}$$ = $$\frac{\sqrt{14}}{2}$$

Now, we find the square roots of 14 up to 3 places of decimal.

Thus, √14 = 3.741 up to 3 places of decimal.

= 3.74 correct up to 2 places of decimal.

Therefore, $$\frac{\sqrt{14}}{2}$$ = $$\frac{3.74}{2}$$ = 1.87.

4. Find the square root of 1$$\frac{56}{169}$$

Solution:

1$$\frac{56}{169}$$ = $$\frac{225}{169}$$

Therefore, $$\sqrt{1\frac{56}{169}}$$ = $$\sqrt{\frac{225}{169}} = \frac{\sqrt{225}}{\sqrt{169}}$$

We find the square roots of 225 and 169 separately

Therefore, √225 = 15 and √169 = 13

⇒ $$\sqrt{1\frac{56}{169}}$$ = $$\sqrt{\frac{225}{169}} = \frac{\sqrt{225}}{\sqrt{169}}$$ = $$\frac{15}{13}$$ = 1$$\frac{2}{13}$$

5. Find the value of $$\frac{\sqrt{243}}{\sqrt{363}}$$.

Solution:

$$\frac{\sqrt{243}}{\sqrt{363}}$$ = $$\sqrt{\frac{243}{363}}$$  = $$\sqrt{\frac{81}{121}} = \frac{\sqrt{81}}{\sqrt{121}}$$ = $$\frac{9}{11}$$

6. Find out the value of √45 × √20.

Solution:

√45 × √20 = √(45 × 20)

= √(3 × 3 × 5 × 2 × 2 × 5)

= √(3 × 3 × 2 × 2 × 5 × 5 )

= (3 × 2 × 5)

= 30.
