(i) The square root of 525 can be calculated by long division method as follows.

The remainder is 41. It represents that the square of 22 is less than 525. Next number is 23 and 232 = 529 Hence, number to be added to 525 = 232 − 525 = 529 − 525 = 4 The required perfect square is 529 and 529 = 23

(ii) The square root of 1750 can be calculated by long division method as follows.

The remainder is 69. It represents that the square of 41 is less than 1750. The next number is 42 and 422 = 1764 Hence, number to be added to 1750 = 422 − 1750 = 1764 − 1750 = 14 The required perfect square is 1764 and 1764 = 42
