Any integer is a perfect square oot (of its square). So 300 is a perfect square root of 90000.

The square root of a positive integer can ONLY be:* Either an integer, * Or an irrational number. (The proof of this is basically the same as the proof, in high school algebra books, that the square root of 2 is irrational.) Since in this case 32 is not the square of an integer, it therefore follows that its square root is an irrational number.

The square root of 27 is an irrational number

The square root of 61 is an irrational number

No to be a perfect square you should be able to take the number and square root it on the calculator and get an integer.

To be a perfect square, a number must have a square root that evaluates to an integer. The square root of 2 is approximately equal to 1.414, thus it is not a perfect square.

Assuming your number is an integer: if the number is a perfect square, the number is of course an integer, and therefore rational. If the number is NOT a perfect square, it is irrational.
