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.)
No, it is not even a real number. The square root of negative 5 is the square root of 5, times i.
(Square root of 12) times i.
Treat it like a positive and add an i. Explanation: The square root of negative nine is equal to the square root of nine times negative one is equal to the square root of nine times the square root of negative one. The square root of negative one represented by an italic lower case i. The square root of negative nine is 3i. √-9 = √9 * -1 = √9 * √-1 = 3i
it is impossible to get the square root of a negative, since the definition of a square root is something times itself. example: the square root of 16 is 4 because 4 x 4 = 16. and a negative times a negative is a positive, so the square root of a negative is impossible. however, you can do the square root of 121 (which is 11) and make the 11 a negative. 11 x 11 = 121 and -11 x -11 = 121 but you could make 11 negative after the fact, if that is what you wanted to do.
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
The negative square root of -144 is -12i - that is -12 times the square root of minus 1, ie √-144 = 12√-1. The above is a complex number, which I suspect is not the answer you wanted; there is no real number that is the square root of a negative number If you wanted the negative square root of 144, then it is -12.
I think it is Xi (whatever the square root of the positive is times i). i is an imaginary number that when you square it, it becomes negative. eg. the square root of -4 is 2i. Without "i", it would be impossible to square root a negative number, as any number times itself will always equal a positive.
Since it is the square root of a negative number, it is actually imaginary, neither rational nor irrational. It is equal to 9i, or 9 times whatever the square root of negative one is.square root of -81 = square root of 81 times i = 9i
It doesn't have a square root, it is impossible because any number times itself is a postive.
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
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
Because the Square Root of negative 1 = i (The imaginary square root of negative 1.) and where if the square root of one number and of another number are multiplied together, the answer is equal to the square root of the two numbers combined. (Square root of 8 times the square root of 5 equals the square root of 40.) So... √(-20) =√20×√(-1) =√4×√5×i =2i(√5) The answer is 2i times the square root of 5. square root (-20) = square root (-1) x square root (20) square root (-20) = i x 4.47213595 square root (-20) = 4.47213595 i
It is not possible for a negative number to have a square root. Any square root is the number that, when you multiply it by ITSELF it will equal the number you are square rooting. Example: The square root of 4 is 2. 2 times itself(2x2) is 4. Negative numbers are imposable to square root because the square root cannot be multiplied by its opposite ( i.e. -2 times 2 or 4 times -4), it must be multiplied by itself. Any positive multiplied by a positive is a positive, and any negative multiplied by a negative is a positive. So any number times ITSELF will always be a positive. ( i.e. -4 time -4 is 16 as 4 times 4 is also sixteen.) If a squared square root is always positive then a negative number cannot have a square root. It's imposable.* * * * *True for basic mathematics but not so for more advanced mathematics. There is a whole area of mathematics called complex mathematics which is based on the square root of negative numbers. The square root of -1 is defined as i.
Remember when taking the square root of a number, that there is the positive answer, but also there is a negative numbert answer. An example is the square root of 49 can be either 7 or negative seven, because when you multiply negative seven times itself, you get forty nine.
The answer is an imaginary number, because of the negative under the square root. The same number multiplied together will always be a positive number. For example, if you square negative one, the answer is positive one, because a negative times a negative is a positive. Because a square root undoes a square, there is no solution to the square root of a negative number. That's why your calculator could not compute this problem. However, there is a way to solve these types of problems by using imaginary numbers. The answer is 13i, where i is the square root of negative one.
If, by "third square root" you mean cube root, the answer is 7.
No, nor is it a real number. The square root of minus 54 is equal to the square root of plus 45, times i.
