Finding Square Roots Easily (Vedic Math)

Finding Square Roots Easily (Vedic Math)


Hello, Guys!!! I’m back with another post on Vedic Math that is going to keep you glued rooted to your spot 😆. This time I’m going to teach you how to calculate the square roots of perfect squares faster…


With a little practice, this method can let you calculate the roots in a matter of 5 seconds, whereas if you had used the traditional method, you would still be stuck with your question 😏


Things you need to know:-



Perfect square which has unit digit 1 will have square root with the last digit as 1 or 9


Perfect square which has unit digit 4 will have square root with the last digit as 2 or 8


Perfect square which has unit digit 5 will have square root with the last digit as 5


Perfect square which has unit digit 6 will have square root with the last digit as 4 or 6


Perfect square which has unit digit 9 will have square root with the last digit as 3 or 7


Perfect square which has unit digit 0 will have square root with the last digit as 0



And most importantly… you need to know this handy little trick for the method to work.


If you need to find the square of a number which ends with 5 you just write 25 at the end and multiply the remaining digits with its successor. Here are a couple of examples to help you understand better…



So, now that you know everything to make this trick work… here’s The Thing itself



Huh?! Someone called me???
 I'm sorry for that interruption... So without further adieu,

Let us begin!!



For this post let’s try to find 5776


1) Firstly, consider the last 2 digits- 76, and find the last number of the square root referring above… in this case, 4 or 6





2) Next, consider the remaining digits, 57 and find a number whose square is nearest to 57 but not above it, 7 x 7 = 49, therefore 7 in this case.


3) So this number can have square root as either 76 or 74, to know which is the correct answer read further



4) Now we take the number between 76 and 74 i.e. 75 and find its square using the method given above -


75 x 75 = (7x8)25


              = 5625



5) If the answer obtained in step 4 is greater than the number we want to find the root of, we take the greater option (6), if it is less than the original number, we take the lesser option (4)


6) As 5625 < 5776, therefore 5776 = 76


Voila! You get your answer


Some words of caution:-



·        Only works on perfect squares.


·        If the number ends in 5 or 0, then you don’t need to follow steps 3 – 6

Animal and Plant Cells

 Cells Cells are the basic functional, biological and structural unit of life. The word cell is a Latin word meaning ‘small room’. Cells are also known as building blocks of life.  The branch of science that deals with the form, structure, and composition of a cell is known as Cytology. All organisms around us are made up of cells. Bacteria, ameba, paramecium, algae, fungi, plants and animals are made up of cells.  Cells together form tissues. And tissue together makes an organ. History Of Cell The cell was discovered by Robert Hooke in 1665. He assembled a simple microscope and observed a very thin slice of cork under his primitive microscope. The cork was obtained from the outer covering of a tree called bark. Robert Hooke observed many little-partitioned boxes or compartments in the cork slice. These boxes appeared like a honey-comb. He termed these boxes as the cell. He also noticed that one box was separated from another by a wall. What Ho

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment Hey, Guys, most of you might have heard about the alpha ray scattering experiment and if you want to know in detail about Rutherford's model and the experiment he conducted, this is the right place for you... But first: Things You Must Know Some basic information that will help you understand rutherford experiment properly: Proton is a sub-atomic particle which is positively charged and has a mass of 1u. Alpha particles are helium atom with a charge of +2 as they have lost 2 electrons. Alpha particles have an atomic mass  of 4u. Gold is highly malleable and can be beaten into very thin sheets. Experiment Rutherford conducted his experiment in the following way: Rutherford took a very thin gold foil and bombarded it with high energy alpha particles. He placed a layer of zinc sulphide on the walls where the experiment was taking place because when alpha particles strike zinc sulphide layer, it results i

Isotopes, Isobars and Isotones

Isotopes These are elements which have the same atomic number but different atomic mass . They have the same atomic number because the number of protons that are inside their nuclei remains the same. But, they have different atomic mass because the number of neutrons that are also inside their nuclei is different. As the number of protons inside nuclei remains same, therefore the overall charge of the elements also remains same as in isotopes: no of protons = no of electrons . Hence, as isotopes overall charge remains neutral, therefore their chemical properties will also remain identical.   Therefore, Isotopes are chemically same but physically different.

Cathode Ray Experiment

This experiment was conducted by J.J. Thomson (Sir Joseph John Thomson) in the year 1897. This experiment proved that atom is made up of fundamental particles which are much smaller than the smallest atom 'hydrogen' This experiment helped to discover electron. According to J.J. Thomson, the cathode rays consisted of very light, small and negatively charged particles. He named the particles "corpuscles" which were later known as electrons
