Sometimes. eg the irrational number √2 squared is 2 which is rational (2 = 2/1) eg the irrational number √(√2) squared is √2 which is irrational.

20 squared is not an irrational number. 202 = 400.

No. Perfect squares as the squares of the integers, whereas irrational squares as the squares of irrational numbers, but some irrational numbers squared are whole numbers, eg √2 (an irrational number) squared is a whole number.

Any number that can't be expressed as a fraction is an irrational number.

No because 7 squared equals 49 which is a rational number but the square root of 7 is an irrational number

5 squared is 5*5 is 25. 25 is not an irrational number.

20 squared is 400 which is a rational number

No because 102 squared is 10404 which is a rational number

Because it has no number that can be squared to make it.

3 squared is 9 and 4 squared is 16, so the square root of any whole number between 9 and 16 will be irrational.

Rational.

Rational.

The square of any rational number is also rational.

Rational; 62 = 36. Any rational number that is squared is still rational.

Yes and the area of any circle is an irrational number because its area is pi*radius squared whereas pi is an irrational number.

In most case you must multiply the number by itself.When the number is irrational ( meaning it cannot be expressed as a fraction,) you may end up with a one that is rational ( can be expressed as a fraction).For example, the 2 squared is 2x2=4square root of 2 is irrational but square root of 2 times itself is 2.Pi is an irrational number but PixPi is Pi2 which is still irrational.Even complex numbers can be squared by multiplying the number by itself.So a+bi is a complex number and (a+bi)2 =(a+bi)(a=bi) where i is the square root of -1.

No. The power 2, which denotes squared, is one of an infinite number of possible values for the index. Indices (or powers) can be negative, fractional, irrational or even complex.

12 squared is not irrational. It's 144 .

Because there is no number of the form x = p/q where p and q are integers such that x-squared = 2.

No because 36 squared is 1296 which can be expressed as an improper fraction in the form of 1296/1 whereas irrational numbers can't be expressed as fractions.

The product of two irrational numbers may be rational or irrational. For example, sqrt(2) is irrational, and sqrt(2)*sqrt(2) = 2, a rational number. On the other hand, (2^(1/4)) * (2^(1/4)) = 2^(1/2) = sqrt(2), so here two irrational numbers multiply to give an irrational number.
