## Simplify Square Root of 75

What is the simplest radical form of square root of 75? Note that 75 = 25×3. We will take square root on both sides.

∴ $\sqrt{75}=\sqrt{25 \times 3}$

$=\sqrt{25} \times \sqrt{3}$ $[\because \sqrt{x \times y}=\sqrt{x} \times \sqrt{y}]$

$=5 \times \sqrt{3}$

$=5\sqrt{3}$

So the simplified form of the square root of 75 is 5√3.

## What is the Square Root of 75

From above we have that √75=5√3. As we know that √3=1.732, we obtain that

√75=5√3

= 5 × 1.732

= 8.66

So the value of the square root of 75 is 8.66

## Is Square Root of 75 Rational?

Recall that √75=5√3. As the square root of 3 is an irrational number, we conclude that the square root of 75 is an irrational number. So √75 is not a rational number.

## Square Root of 75 by Prime Factorization

Using the prime factorization method to compute the square root of 75 we need to first factorize 75. As 75 has unit digit 5, it will be divisible by 5, so we can write 75=5 × 15. In the same way, we have 15=5 × 3. So finally we get the prime factorization of 75 which is

\[75=5 \times 5 \times 3\]

Taking square root on both sides, we get that

$\sqrt{75}=\sqrt{5 \times 5 \times 3}$

$=\sqrt{5 \times 5} \times \sqrt{3}$ $[\because \sqrt{x \times y}=\sqrt{x} \times \sqrt{y}$ with $x=5 \times 5$ and $y=3]$

$=5 \times \sqrt{3}$

$=5\sqrt{3}$

So $5\sqrt{3}$ is the value of the square root $75,$ and this is obtained by the prime factorization method.
