A square root is an answer to the question: Which number must be squared (multiplied by itself) to get a specified number. For example, if you ask for the square root of 100, the answer is 10, because 10x10 = 100.

What is the square root of - 0.50?

there is no real square root of a minus number (think about it, minus x minus = plus, plus x plus=plus, and you can't have a minus x plus if it's a square root). However, there is an imaginary root which is "1/2i", where "i" represents the square root of -1. This number doesn't actually "exist" as such, it is just a theory which makes doing maths easier. However if you're not familiar with the concept of "i", you're probably not meant to end up with a minus square root (anything below A level further maths you don't usually need "i") . Check your calculations again.

What is the square root of negative ten?

In school maths the square root of negative numbers does not exist. It is only in more advanced mathematics that you learn that the square roots of -10 are ± 3.162i where i is the imaginary square root of -1.This a bit like being taught, in early junior school, that 2 cannot divide 3. Only later, you learn that it can, and the answer is 1.5.
