# Q. Find whether each of the following numbers is a perfect square or not?(v) 69

If it is a sum of successive odd natural numbers starting with 1, then it is a perfect square.

So we try to express 69 in successive odd natural numbers. This can also be done by subtracting successive odd natural numbers from 69.

69 - 1 = 68

68 - 3 = 65

65 - 5 = 60

60 - 7 = 53

53 - 9 = 43

43 - 11 = 32

32 - 13 = 19

19 - 15 = 4

So the given number 69 is not a perfect square.
