What are Squares and Square Roots?
The square of a number means to multiply the number by itself. In exponent form, it will have an exponent of 2.
For example, the square of 4 is 42 = 4 × 4 = 16.
The opposite of squaring a number is finding the square root. Since 42 = 16, the square root of 16 is 4.
