For the following number, find the smallest whole number by which it should be divided so as to get a perfect square number. Also find the square root of the square number so obtained.
2645 can be factorised as follows.
2645 = 5 x 23 x 23
Here, prime factor 5 does not have its pair.
If we divide this number by 5, then the number will become a perfect square.
Therefore, 2645 has to be divided by 5 to obtain a perfect square.
2645 ÷5 = 529 is a perfect square.
529 = 23 x 23
∴ `sqrt529` = 23
