What Is the Square Root of 112?
The square root of a number n is written as √n. This number when squared or multiplied by itself results in the original number n. The square root of 112 can be written in multiple ways.
 Radical form: √112 = 4√7
 Decimal form: 10.583
 Exponent form: (112)^{1/2}
Is Square Root of 112 Rational or Irrational?
 112 is a number that is not a perfect square, meaning it does not have a natural number as its square root.
 Also, its square root cannot be expressed as a fraction of the form p/q which tells us that the square root of 112 is an irrational number.

Long Division Method
The square root of 112 by long division method consists of the following steps:
 Step 1: Starting from the right, we will pair up the digits of 112 by putting a bar above 12 and 1 separately. We also pair the 0s in decimals in pairs of 2 from left to right.
 Step 2: Find a number which, when multiplied by itself, gives a product less than or equal to 1. This will be 1 here, so place 1 in the quotient and in the divisor's place which will result in the remainder being 0.
 Step 3: Drag down 12 beside the remainder 0. Also, add the divisor to itself and write it below. (1+1=2)
 Step 3: Find a number X such that 2X × X results in a number less than or equal to 12. The number 0 fits here so fill it next to 2 in the divisor as well as next to 1 in the quotient.
 Step 4: Find the remainder and now drag down the pair of 0s from the decimal part of the number. Adding X to the divisor, the new divisor remains 20.
 Step 5: Repeat this process to get the decimal places you want.
Therefore, the square root of 112 = 10.583
Prime Factorization
 To find the square root of 112, we shall first express it in terms of its prime factors.
112 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 7  Next, this can be reduced further to
112 = 2^{4} × 7  Finally, to find the root of this from here is very easy,
√112 = √(2^{4} × 7)
√112 = 4√7 = 10.583
Therefore, the square root of 112 = 10.583

Solved Examples

Example 1: Charles wants to calculate the side length of his right triangleshaped garden. The hypotenuse and one side measure 10 and 8 centimeters respectively.
Solution:
Hypotenuse = 10 cm = h
Side 1 = 8 cm = a
Side 2 = b
To find the third side we need to use the formula, h^{2 }= a^{2} + b^{2}
b^{2}^{ }= h^{2}  a^{2 }= 10^{2}  8^{2} = 100  64 = 36
b= √36 = 6Therefore, the side length measures 6 units.

Example 2: What is the radius of a circle having an area of 112π square inches?
Solution:
The area is found using the formula of the area of a circle, which is πr^{2}. By the given information,
πr^{2} = 112π
r^{2} = 112
r = 10.583Therefore, the radius of the circle is ≅ 10.6 inches
