#### Solution

3675 = 3 x 5 x 5 x 7 x 7 Grouping them into pairs of equal factors:
3675 = (5 x 5) x (7 x 7) x 3
The factor, 3 is not paired. For a number to be a perfect square, each prime factor has to be paired. Hence, 3675 must be multiplied by 3 for it to be a perfect square.
The new number would be (5 x 5) x (7 x 7) x (3 x 3).
Furthermore, we have:
(5 x 5) x (7 x 7) x (3 x 3) = (3 x 5 x 7) x (3 x 5 x 7)
Hence, the number whose square is the new number is:
3 x 5 x 7 = 105
