A negative square root is an imaginary number.

There is no square root of a negative number. It would have to be a half negative, which is impossible.

There is no need to find the square root of a negative number for sqrt(0.6)!

Find the positive square root and put a minus sign in front of it.

using basic math principles, you can't find the square root of a negative number because in order for a number to be a square root, you have to multiply it by itself to get your radical. since a negative times a negative and a positive times a positive are both positive, it is impossible to find the square root of a negative number

Use a calculator (if you need) to find the principal square root. The second square root is the negative of the number.

it is impossible to have a square root for a negative number. so your answer would be "not possible".

The square root of (-5)2 is 5. (-5 is also a square root, but "the" square root refers to the positive root in this case.) The square root of -52 is the square root of -25, or 5i. "i" is the imaginary unit. Read about "imaginary numbers" or "complex numbers" for more information. This would create confusions. Would that mean that the square of any negative number is negative?

you cant get the square root of a negative number. nothing times itself would equal a negative number. if you have √-25 then its not possible. If you have -√25 then you take the square root of 25 and make it negative, so then it would be -5

This is not possible, because any number squared would be positive, not negative.

Nothing. You cannot have a square root of a negative number. The square root of negative one is called i, but i is an imaginary number. It does not exist and does not follow the properties of real numbers. (For example, if a and b are positive, then the square root of a times the square root of b is the square root of ab. But the square root of -7 is not the square root of 7 times i.)

There is no square root for a negative number. It is an imaginary number.

The square root of a negative number is not real.

square root of a negative number is imaginary square root of negative 1 is defined as i square root of negative 144 is sqrt ((144)(-1)) = 12i

Square roots of negative numbers are what are called imaginary numbers. The building block of imaginary numbers is the symbol i which is defined as the square root of negative 1. The square root of other negative numbers can be expressed using i. For example, the square root of negative sixteen is 4i, the square root of negative nine is 3i and so on.

-1,0,or 1 the negative square root of four is negative two and the square root of four is two

The second root would be the negative of the principal root.

The square root of 100 is 10 but positive and a negative is a negative so it is negative 10

24

Because the square root of -25 would be that number that, squared, would equal -25. No number, positive or negative, can result in a negative square. Since -25 is a negative number, no number, positive or negative, can be squared to equal -25.

You don't. If the negative sign is outside the radical, then you take the square root of the number and apply the negative. If the negative sign is inside the radical, you will have an imaginary number.

No, it is not even a real number. The square root of negative 5 is the square root of 5, times i.

Negative 64 is the square root of an integer. The square root of -64 is not an integer.

The square root of negative 168 is: ~12.9315 i

The square root of negative 37 is: ~6.0827 i
