y*3150 to be square, lets factor 3150

3150 = 5 x 5 x 3 x 3 x 7 x 2 = (5 x 3)^2 x 14

so least value needed to make y a square will 14

Also got 14 by prime factorization. About 1 min.
3150 = 2 * 3^2 * 5^2 * 7 = n^2
Put all primes to power 2. You are missing 2 * 7
You will get 2^2 * 3^2 * 5^2 * 7^2 = (2*3*5*7)^2 = 210^2 = n^2
