(11^(1/2)-5^(1/2))^8+(11^(1/2)+5^(1/2))^8 => 451856+60928

2^(1/2)+ 451856-609282^(1/2) => 903712sqrt of 903712 is around 950.6(app.)

so the required answer lies between 950 and 951 but we are asked postive square root of perfect square therefor answer is 951 whose square is 904401 which is greater than 903172
