Squares and Square Roots Worksheets
What is the Difference Between Squares & Square Roots? Sometimes, mathematics presents us with something that is not just tricky but also very confusing! Like do you know what squares are? Exactly. There are two types of the square, a shape, and a number, and then there are square roots as well. So, do you know what they are? That’s quite alright, and there is definitely no need to worry about it! We will take these terms one by one and see what they mean! Now, let’s take a look! Square - When we talk about squaring a number, it means that you have to multiply the number by itself. For example: 3 * 3 = 9 | 4 * 4 = 16 | 5 * 5 = 25. When the number needs to be squared, it is written like this: 42 . This means "4 squared equals 16." Square root - Square root means getting the number that was multiplied to get the number. For example: 3 squared is 9, so a square root of 9 is 3. 4 squared is 16, so the square root of 16 is 4. 5 squared is 25, so the square root of 25 is 5. The symbol of the square root is √, which is known as radical.
Passion For Circles
The Greeks were obsessed with trying to square a circle - something that can not be done! Try it. You can't draw a square with the same area as a circle using standard/Euclidean straight-edge compass construction in a finite number of steps.
