SQUARE ROOTS
Squares
•Square of a number: “Squaring” a
number means to raise a number
to the second power.
Example:
4² = 4 · 4 = 16
9² = 9 · 9 = 81
16² = 16 · 16 = 256
Square Roots
The Square Root of a number is the
number you can multiply by itself to
give you that number.
Thus,
Try:
= 2, because 22=4
= 3, because 32=9
= 8, because 82=64
= 12, because 122=144
= 1, because 12 = 1
= 0, because 02 = 0
Perfect Squares
A Perfect Square: is “perfect”
because its square root is a
whole number.
Example:
49 is a perfect square
because
=7
Non-Perfect Squares
A Non-Perfect Square: is a
number whose square root is
NOT a whole number.
Example:
40 is NOT a perfect square
because
= 6.3245…
Approximating Square Roots
You need to estimate its value of nonperfect squares by determining which
two perfect squares it falls in between.
Example:
11 is a non-perfect square
11 falls between perfect squares 9 & 16
Therefore,
is between
and
Since,
= 3 and
=4
Then
is between 3 and 4

the following non-perfect square fall
between. SHOW WORK!
