Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, we will practise estimating square roots.


Method

We know the square numbers from 12 to 122
i.e.,  1= 1, 2= 4, 3= 9 etc.


We can estimate the square roots of numbers between the square numbers.

√7 is between √4 and √9  ie. 2 and 3.


So √7 is approximately 2.6  (7 is nearer to 9 than to 4)

√59 is between √49 and √64 between 7 and 8.


approximately 7.7 (nearer to 8).
