In the long division method, you repeatedly divide the number by an approximation of the square root until you reach a satisfactory level of accuracy. In the prime factorization method, you write the number as a product of its prime factors and then take the square root of each factor. Finally, you multiply the square roots of the factors to get the square root of the original number.
