SQUARES AND SQUARE ROOTS OF NUMBERS
Squares
The square of a number is the number multiplied by itself.
e.g.
The square of 3 is 9, which is 3 x 3
The square of 10 is 100, which is 10 x 10
We can write a small
we want to square it.

So

just above and to the right of a number to show that
means ‘find the square of 3’ or ‘3 squared’
means ’10 squared’

We can square any number, not just whole numbers, in the same way.

1.2 x 1.2
=

SQUARE ROOTS
The square root of a number is the opposite of squaring a number.
e.g.
If the square of 3 is 9 ( which is 3 x 3)
Then the square root of 9 is 3
We can use the sign
to mean square root.
So 9 means ‘the square root of 9’
To find the square root we have to think of a figure, multiplied by itself, that
will give us the number.
e.g.
C.
1)
16 is 4,
because 4 x 4 = 16
9 is 3,
because 3 x 3 = 9
Now have a go at these.
Write down the square roots of these numbers.

It is not always straightforward to work out the square root of a number.
Sometimes the number is very large, or the square root is not a whole number.
Most calculators have a square root sign button. It will have the square root
sign on it.
