Hi ganesh;

That is okay.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

Hi ShivamS and bobbym,

The solution #4990 is perfect. Marvelous!

#4991. Find the greatest number of five digits which is a perfect square.

#4992. Find the smallest number that must be added to 1780 to make it a perfect square.

### Re: 10 second questions

Are we allowed to use a calculator? The only way of solving

#4991. Find the greatest number of five digits which is a perfect square.

in 10 seconds is by taking the square root of 99999 and then squaring 316.

You could know that the square root of 10 is about 3.16, now you can easily get the square root of 100000

### Re: 10 second questions

Hi ShivamS,

Solution : #4991.
The greatest number of 5 digits is 99999.
316 x 316 + x = 99999
(knowing square root of 10 = 3.16)
Required number = (99999 - 143) = 99856.

Hi ganesh;

Can you explain what you mean by 6.25 of x? I have been treating it as x.

### Re: 10 second questions

Hi bobbym,

In the problems #4999 and #5000, the operation '6.25 of x' is to be treated as

;
and
is to be treated in a similar way. However, the priority is foremost on 'of' operation, followed by division, then multiplication.
