Does a square root have to be a whole number?

No, a square root doesn't have to be a whole number. The square root of 2.25 is 1.5. It could be said that most square roots are not whole numbers. Take just the first few integers (counting numbers). Find the square roots of the numbers 1 through 10 and you'll find three of the numbers have whole number square roots (1, 4 and 9). The other seven don't. For the numbers 11 through 20, there is only 1 number with a whole number square root (16).

What is the whole number of 10.555?

11A whole number is a positive number without decimals. To find the closest whole number version of 10.555, round it to the nearest number. Since 5 and above round up, 10.555 rounds to 11.

How do you find a perfect square?

How do you solve imperfect squares?

u cant get the excat answer but if you want 1) To find imperfect squares you estimate the square to the nearest integer 85 2) This is an imperfect square because no whole number multiplies itself to equal 85 you find the closest square but less than the imperfect squares answer 9*9=81 4) Now you find a square that is closest higher than the imperfect squares answer 10*10=100 5) So 85 lays between 9 and 10

Can you square a square root?

Yes, the whole idea of taking the "square root" of a number is, for example for the square root of 2, to find the number that, when squared, gives you 2. if you try to do both, they cancel each other out.

Where do you find square roots?

say u have the number 16. Its square root is 4. the square root(4) is the number that, when multiplied by itself, gives the original number (16). To find a square root you must first find the two closet perfect squares (a square being the product of a square root, a perfect square being the product of square roots that are whole numbers 1,2,3,4, ect.) then u find the approxomate distance between

How can you tell if a number is a perfect square?

One way is to get the prime factorization of the number. If every prime occurs an even number of times, it is a square, otherwise, not. Another is to estimate the square root of the number, and square it. If you get more than the number, try a lower estimate; if less, a higher one. Using interval bisection you very quickly zero in on the square root, if it is a whole number. If so, the number is a perfect square. Otherwise, you find 2 consecutive whole numbers between which is the square root, in which case it is not a perfect square.

What is a square or square root of a number?

Well, talking math, square and square root are two different math terms. Square: Square can mean to square a number, which means to multiply it by itself. Such as, 6 squared is written as a 6 with a little 2 in the top right corner. So, you multiply 6 of 6 to get 36. You can do that with any number in the world. Square Root: Square Roots of numbers are very simply to comprehend. If you want to square root 36, you find the number that when multiplied by itself equals that number. So its basically the opposite of Squaring a number.

How do you find the square roots of fractions?

Square rootsTo find the square root of a number, you want to find some number that when multiplied by itself gives you the original number. In other words, to find the square root of 25, you want to find the number that when multiplied by itself gives you 25. The square root of 25, then, is 5. The symbol for the square root is . Following is a partial list of perfect (whole number) square roots.Note: If no sign (or a positive sign) is placed in front of the square root, the positive answer is required. No sign means that a positive is understood. Only if a negative sign is in front of the square root is the negative answer required.A fraction, or fractional number, is used to represent a part of a whole. Fractions consist of two numbers: a numerator (which is above the line) and a denominator(which is below the line).So to work out the square root of a fraction you find the square root of the numerator and put it above the square root of the denominator.

What is a square root called if it can never be squared?

That doesn't really make sense. If you figure out the square root of the number, the whole point is to find a number which, when squared, gives you back the original number. Therefore, there is no such thing as a "square root that can't be squared".

How do you find the of protons of an element?

What you would do is on the periodic table find the element you are looking for, and than once you find it look on the bottom of its square to see the atomic number. Since atomic numbers can be very long you round it to the nearest whole number. Then you subtract that from the number in the top corner of the square to find the amount of protons in it.

How do you find the square root of 31?

First the closest square is 52=25 so the first digit is 5 Then you write two 0 at the right of 31 -> 3100 and try to find the closest square between 50 and 59 (5 is the first digit found) The closest square to 3100 is 55, 552=3025, 562=3136, so the second digit is 5 and one gets 55 Now with 310000 and a number between 550 and 559, the closest square is 5562=309136, the third digit is 6 and so on.... So sqrt(31)=5.56....
