what is square roots

math  Sarah, Sunday, February 28, 2010 at 7:54pm
a square root of a number x is a number r such that r2 = x, or, in other words, a number r whose square (the result of multiplying the number by itself) is x.
For example:
square route of 16 = 4 because the square of 4 = 4 X 4 or 16
