**100: 100×100 = 10000** - It is the positive solution of the quadratic equation x
^{2}=100. - If a square has an area of 100 unit
^{2}, then we use the square root of 100 to find the length of the square.

**What is the Square Root of 100?**

The value of the square root of 100 is 10. To prove this, we will write 100 as a square of some numbers as 100 is a perfect square. See that 100 is a product of two numbers of 10‘s. So we write

100=10×10=10^{2}

Taking square root on both sides, we have

√100 = √10^{2}

As square root can be written as power 1/2, we get that

√100 = (10^{2})^{1/2} = 10^{2×}^{1/2} as we know that (a^{m})^{n }= a^{m×n}

= 10^{1 }= 10

So the square root of 100 is 10.

**Is 100 a perfect square number?**

We know that √100=10 and 10 is a whole number. This implies that the square root of 100 is also a whole number.

∴ the definition of a perfect square implies that 100 is a perfect square number.

**Square root of 100 by Prime Factorization**

To find the square root of 100 by the prime factorization method, let us first factorize 100.

As 100 is an even number, it is divisible by 2. So we write

100=2×50.

Again, 50=2×25 and 25=5×5, we obtain that

100=2×2×5×5 …(∗)

So the above is the prime factorization of 100.

Taking square root on both sides of (∗), we get that

√100 = √(2×2×5×5)

= √(2×2) × √(5×5)

= 2×5 as we know that √a×a=a

= 10

∴ the value of the square root of 100 is 10.

**Is Square Root of 100 Rational?**

We know that a rational number can be written as p/q where p and q are integers with q ≠ 0.

It is known from above that √100=10.

As 10=10/1, we can write 10 as p/q with p=10, q=1≠0.

Thus 10 is a rational number.

⇒ the square root of 100 is also a rational number.

**Conclusion:** √100 is not an irrational number.
