Find the perfect squares that your number lies between. Your square root will lie between their square roots. Whichever it is closer to will indicate the size of the decimal.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What make a number a perfect square number?

A perfect square is the square of an integer, i.e., an integer multiplied by itself. For example, 25 is a perfect square, because 5 x 5 = 25. But, in literal mathematical terms, a perfect number is a positive integer that is the sum of its proper positive divisors, excluding the number itself. A square number is also called a "perfect square", so an example of a square number is above. So, a perfect square number would have to be a number that is both perfect and square, and there are yet to be any of these numbers "discovered".

How do you find the value number if you already have a square root?

Multiply the square root by itself. After you do that, please discuss the idea of square roots with somebody who knows. You don't understand them yet.

What is the square root of any whole number?

The square root of a positive whole number, N, is a number which, when multiplied by itself equals N. If N = 0 then the square root is also 0. If N is greater than 0 there will be two such numbers: one positive and the other its negative equivalent. If N is a perfect square the square roots will, themselves, be whole numbers. Otherwise, they will be irrational numbers. If N is a whole number less than 0 then there are no real square roots. Although there are square roots in the complex field, the fact that you ask this question is indicative that you are not yet ready to tackle complex numbers.

What is the square root of a triangle?

A square root is a numerical function. The square root of a non-negative real number is a real number which, when multiplied by itself, produced the given the number. So, for example, given the number 9, its square roots are -3 and +3 since (-3)*(-3) = 9 and also, (+3)*(+3) = 9. Actually, negative numbers also have square roots but, judging by this question, you have not yet advanced to that level of mathematics. Meanwhile, a triangle is a geometric shape and cannot have a square root.

How can you find the square root of pi?

As nobody has yet managed to fully define pi, we cannot come up with a square root for it. For most textbooks the value of pi is usually approximated to 3.1416. The square root of that is 1.772455923288362, and you may round that off to whatever number of decimal places you require.

What is the square root or x if it is less then 9?

Assuming you are not yet into complex numbers, the answer is: some number between 0 and 3 (but not including 3).

Is an irrational number times an irrational number always irrational?

The square root of 2 is irrational, yet the product of it with itself is 2. So the answer is no.

What is the sqaure root of 70?

How do you solve 6 plus the square root of negative 8 over 10?

If you are dealing with the square root of negative numbers you are at a level of maths that is advanced enough for you to be able to answer such a basic question. The fact that you do not know the answer to the question suggests that you are not yet studying complex numbers. That being the case, there is something wrong with the question.

Why is it that when an integer is square rooted its value decreases yet when a fraction is square rooted its value increases?

Because the square root sign is only asking you how many times will a certain number multiplied by itself will be the same as the number being square rooted. For instance the square root of 64 is 8 and 8*8 = 64 Likewise the square root of 1/64 is 1/8 and 1/8*1*8 = 1/64 In mathematics signs and symbols are only questions and answers in short hand.

What is the square of the square root of -4?

-4 can be written as 4 x -1, therefore the root can be broken up as root(-4) = root(4) x root(-1) If you haven't done maths to this level yet, you may not have seen this, but the Mathematician Gauss introduced the idea of complex numbers and their representation to solve an age-old problem of the square root of negative numbers. He brought in a new notation: root(-1) = i (Some engineers like to use j instead of i as i often represents electrical current) Since root(4) = -2 or 2, root(-4) = 2i or -2i (written as ±2i)

Another word for roots?

Root has several different meanings. At least two in mathematics and many more elsewhere. 1. root of an equation = zero of an equation 2. root as in square/cube root = radical Some people have suggested root as in base, but I have yet to come across that in any mathematical text.

How many square roots does a negative Number have?

This depends on whether you include imaginary numbers. The imaginary unit i is defined such that i² = -1. So the square root of -1 will be either i or -i. So the answer is there are 2 square roots for any number. Now if you are at a level of mathematics, which does not yet consider i, then the answer is you cannot take the square root of a negative.

How many perfect numbers are there?

There is no way to determine the amount of perfect numbers there are. The number could be infinite, but this has yet to be proven. It has also yet to be proven if there are any odd perfect numbers.

How do you compute the cost per square meter of a building if it hasn't been finished yet?

You cannot compute the cost but you can estimate it on the basis of previous experience.

What is the square root of negative 12?

i x 2 x the square root of 3 or approximately 3.46i.i is the square root of negative -1. It is what mathematicians call an imaginary number. Even though they use an unfortunate name like "imaginary" it is not imaginary in the same sense that unicorns and fairies are. If you have not covered imaginary numbers in your grade yet, tell your teacher that there is no answer in the real number system.

How do you find the square root of a negative fraction?

At your stage of math education, you haven't learned how to handle the squareroot of any negative number yet, whether it's a whole number, a fraction, or adecimal.To indicate the square root of a negative number, temporarily ignore the minus sign,find the square root of the positive number, and then write the letter " i " next tothe answer. That shows that the number is imaginary, and in a few years, you'lllearn what that means and how to work with it.

How do you square root and than square that answer?

Assuming that you mean "square root and then square", the answer is as follows:If you have studied complex mathematics, you do nothing. The square root and square are inverse operations and so you will end up exactly where you started from.If you have not studied complex mathematics, but you started off with a number which was 0 or greater, then you do nothing for the same reason as above.If you have not studied complex mathematics, but you started off with a negative number, then you cannot do the first step because the square root of a negative number is not [yet] defined.

Why was Pythagorean Theorem become necessary to incorporate in the number system?

Your question is so confusing that I almost trashed it and am not sure yet what you want to know but I have a possible idea : consider a right triangle each of whose legs have length 1. By the Pythagorean theorem, the hypotenuse has length equal to the square root of 2. The square root of 2 is irrational- one can prove it is not equal to any fraction of integers, yet it is obviously is a number of some kind. Thus the number system had to be extended to include numbers of this kind.

Does aloe vera have a tap root or fibrous root?

Are tap roots the same as root hairs?

no tap roots are not the same as root hairs, root hairs are more of fibrous roots, on a plant there can only be one major tap root yet there can be many root hairs.
