# Finding Square root using prime factorization method

Procedure to find square root using prime factorization method

• Write the prime factors of the given number
• Make pairs of the equal factors
• Write one factor corresponding to each pair
• Multiply the obtained factors

256=2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2

Make pairs

256=2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2

√256=√2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2

√256=2×2×2×2

√256=16

Q.2 Find the square root of 144 using the prime factorization method.

Solution: 144=2×2×2×2×3×3

Make pairs

144=2×2×2×2×3×3

√144=√2×2×2×2×3×3

√144=2×2×3

√144=12
