# Out of 745 Students, Maximum Are to Be Arranged in the School Field for a P.T. Display, Such that the Number of Rows is Equal to the Number of Columns. Find the Number of Rows If 16 Students - Mathematics

Sum

Out of 745 students, maximum are to be arranged in the school field for a P.T. display, such that the number of rows is equal to the number of columns. Find the number of rows if 16 students were left out after the arrangement.

#### Solution

Total number of students = 745
Students left after standing in arrangement = 16
No. of students who were to be arranged = 745 – 16 = 729
The number of rows = no. of students in each row
No. of rows = sqrt(729)

 3 729 3 243 3 81 3 27 3 9 3 3 1

= sqrt(bar(3 xx 3) xx bar(3xx3) xx bar(3xx3)

= 3 x 3 x 3 = 27
