i.e. between 1600 and 2500. And it is also closer to 50. Now from Step 2, possibilities are 43 or 47 out of
Now since the number 2304 ends with 4 we understand the which 47 is closer to 50
square root should end with either 2 or 8. 4. Hence square root = 47.
The square root lies between 40 and 50 and should end with

As explained earlier, the working of vedic mathematics is this method, there is one more small technique that needs to be

Let us take the number 2704. three digit, four digit and so.
2704 definitely lies between 2500 = (50)2 and 3600= (60)2 Dwanda is represented by D,
So obviously the square root will lie between 50 and 60. So,
Since the given number is 2704 and it ends with 4, the square D(6) = 6 x 6 = 36
root should end in 2 or 8. (refer to the notes above). D(24) = 2 x 2 x 4 = 16
Analysing point no 2 and point no 3 above, we can conclude D(345) = (2x3x5) + (4x4) = 38
that the square root could be 52 or 58. D(2356) = (2x2x6) + (2x3x5) =54
The given number 2704 is closer to 2500 rather than 3600.
Hence the square root should also be closer to 50 rather than We shall now generalise the Dwanda formulas,
60. D(a) = a a
Analyzing the point 4 and point 6 above, we can safely arrive D(ab) = 2 x a x b
at the conclusion that the square root of 2704 is 52. D(abc) (2 x a x c) + (b x b)
Facts for Square Roots Math tricks: D(abcd) = (2 x a x d) + (2 x b x c)
 Squares of numbers from 1 to 9 are 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, Please practice this Dwanda formula with some numbers
49, 64, 81, and 100. before you go further.
 Square of a number cannot end with 2, 3, 7, and 8. OR Let us now look at the using the general method to find:

 Square root of a number ending with 1 (1, 81) ends So we get,
with either 1 or 9 (10’s compliment of each other). 1 25 44
 Square root of a number ending with 4 (4, 64) ends The above table will get formed if we apply DSD Dwanda

 Square root of a number ending with 9 (9, 49) ends So the digits of the answer turns out to be 1 12 00

 Square root of a number ending with 6 (16, 36) ends Where would the decimal point come?
with either 4 or 6 (10’s compliment of each other). Look at the basic number 12544…..since it has odd number
of digits we use the formula
 If number is of ‘n’ digits then square root will be ‘n/2’
Number of digits in square root = (n+ 1)/2 = (5+1)/2 =3
OR ‘(n+1)/2’ digits.
Based on the facts, square root method can be calculated as So the final square root answer would be 112.00 or just 112.
