1) Is 225 a perfect-square? If so, find the number whose square is 225.

Resolving 225 into prime factors, we obtain

225 = 3 x 3 x 5 x 5

Grouping the factors in pairs in such a way that both the factors in each pair are equal, we have

225 = ( 3 x 3 ) x ( 5 x 5 )

Clearly, 225 can be grouped into pairs of equal factors and no factor is left over.

Hence, 225 is a perfect-square.

Again, 225 = (3 x 5) x (3 x 5)

= 15 x 15 = 15

So, 225 is the square of 15.

2) Is 150 a perfect-square? If so,find the number whose square is 150.

Resolving 150 into prime factors, we obtain

150 = 2 x 3 x 5 x 5

Grouping the factors in pairs in such a way that both the factors in each pair are equal, we have

225 = 2 x 3 x ( 5 x 5 )

Clearly, 150 can be grouped into pairs of equal factors.2 and 3 factors are left over.

Hence, 150 is not a perfect-square.
