Square numbers and square roots
Definition: Square numbers Square numbers, also called perfect squares, are the result of multiplying a number (integer) by itself once.
Perfect squares are numbers that can be arranged in a square
Definition: Square root The square root of a number is just the number which when multiplied by itself gives the first number. So 2 is the square root of 4 because 2 * 2 = 4. Finding the square root of a number is the opposite (inverse) of squaring a number
The square root of a square number is represented by the side length of a square.
