#### Solution

4056 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 13 x 13 Grouping them into pairs of equal factors:
4056 = (2 x 2) x (13 x 13) x 2 x 3
The factors at the end, 2 and 3 are not paired. For a number to be a perfect square, each prime factor has to be paired. Hence, 4056 must be multiplied by 6 (2 x 3) for it to be a perfect square.
The new number would be (2 x 2) x (2 x 2) x (3 x 3) x (13 x 13).
Furthermore, we have:
(2 x 2) x (2 x 2) x (3 x 3) x (13 x 13) = (2 x 2 x 3 x 13) x (2 x 2 x 3 x 13)
Hence, the number whose square is the new number is:
2 x 2 x 3 x 13 = 156
