Page 1 SQUARES AND SQUARE ROOTS 89 6.1 Introduction You know that the area of a square = side × side (where ‘side’ means ‘the length of a side’). Study the following table. Side of a square (in cm) Area of the square (in cm 2 ) 1 1 × 1 = 1 = 1 2 2 2 × 2 = 4 = 2 2 3 3 × 3 = 9 = 3 2 5 5 × 5 = 25 = 5 2 8 8 × 8 = 64 = 8 2 aa × a = a 2 What is special about the numbers 4, 9, 25, 64 and other such numbers? Since, 4 can be expressed as 2 × 2 = 2 2 , 9 can be expressed as 3 × 3 = 3 2 , all such numbers can be expressed as the product of the number with itself. Such numbers like 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, ... are known as square numbers. In general, if a natural number m can be expressed as n 2 , where n is also a natural number, then m is a square number. Is 32 a square number? W e know that 5 2 = 25 and 6 2 = 36. If 32 is a square number, it must be the square of a natural number between 5 and 6. But there is no natural number between 5 and 6. Therefore 32 is not a square number. Consider the following numbers and their squares.

Numbers between square numbers Let us now see if we can find some interesting pattern between two consecutive square numbers. 1 (= 1 2 ) 2, 3, 4 (= 2 2 ) 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 (= 3 2 ) 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 (= 4 2 ) 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 (= 5 2 ) Between 1 2 (=1) and 2 2 (= 4) there are two (i.e., 2 × 1) non square numbers 2, 3. Between 2 2 (= 4) and 3 2 (= 9) there are four (i.e., 2 × 2) non square numbers 5, 6, 7, 8. Now, 3 2 = 9, 4 2 = 16 Therefore, 4 2 – 3 2 = 16 – 9 = 7 Between 9(=3 2 ) and 16(= 4 2 ) the numbers are 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 that is, six non-square numbers which is 1 less than the difference of two squares. W e have 4 2 = 16 and 5 2 = 25 Therefore, 5 2 – 4 2 = 9 Between 16(= 4 2 ) and 25(= 5 2 ) the numbers are 17, 18, ... , 24 that is, eight non square numbers which is 1 less than the difference of two squares. Consider 7 2 and 6 2 . Can you say how many numbers are there between 6 2 and 7 2 ? If we think of any natural number n and (n + 1), then, (n + 1) 2 – n 2 = (n 2 + 2n + 1) – n 2 = 2n + 1. We find that between n 2 and (n + 1) 2 there are 2n numbers which is 1 less than the difference of two squares. Thus, in general we can say that there are 2n non perfect square numbers between the squares of the numbers n and (n + 1). Check for n = 5, n = 6 etc., and verify. Two non square numbers between the two square numbers 1 (=1 2 ) and 4(=2 2 ). 4 non square numbers between the two square numbers 4(=2 2 ) and 9(3 2 ). 8 non square numbers between the two square numbers 16(= 4 2 ) and 25(=5 2 ). 6 non square numbers between the two square numbers 9(=3 2 ) and 16(= 4 2 ).Read More
