# Find the greatest number of 5 digits which is a perfect square.

Given:

The given statement is 'the greatest five-digit number which is a perfect square'.

To do:

We have to find such a number.

Solution:

The greatest 5 digit number is 99999.

To find the largest 5 digit number which is a perfect square, first, we have to find out the smallest number which should be subtracted from this number to obtain a perfect square.

For this, we apply the method of finding the square root of 99999 by division method.

316 | |

3 | 99999 9 |

61 | 99 61 |

626 | 3899 3756 |

143 |

The remainder is 143.

Therefore, if we subtract 143 from 99999 then the new number will be a perfect square.

The required number is $99999 - 143 = 99856$.

**Therefore, the greatest five-digit perfect square number is 99856.**
