<p>
Perfect squares are integers which can be obtained by squaring an integer.
</p>
<p>
The first 13 perfect squares are:
</p>
<code>\qquad 1,4,9,16,25,36,49,64,81,100,121,144,169</code>
</div>
</div>
<p><code><var>N * N</var></code> is the nearest perfect square less than <code><var>Q</var></code>.</p>
<p><code><var>(N + 1) * (N + 1)</var></code> is the nearest perfect square more than <code><var>Q</var></code>.</p>
<p>So, we know <code><var>N * N</var> &lt; <var>Q</var> &lt; <var>(N + 1) * (N + 1)</var></code>.</p>
<p>So, <code>\sqrt{<var>N * N</var>} &lt; \sqrt{<var>Q</var>} &lt; \sqrt{<var>(N + 1)*(N + 1)</var>}</code>.</p>
<p class="final_answer">So <code>\sqrt{<var>Q</var>}</code> is between <code><var>N</var></code> and <code><var>N + 1</var></code>.</p>
