sqrt(16/9) = sqrt(16) / sqrt(9) = 4/3 .
That's the square root of positive 16/9. There is no square root of a negative number, unless
you want to get into what's called "imaginary" numbers in math and engineering.
If you want the square root of -(16/9), or (-16)/9, or 16/(-9), in each case it's (4/3)i .
That little ' i ' is the unit imaginary number, defined as the square root of (-1).
That's probably as far into it as we ought to go for right now.
4i over 3
No it is an Imaginary Number√-16 = 4ii is the square root of negative one
The negative square root of 16 is -4. It can be written as the ratio of 792 to -198, so it's rational.
8 (positive or negative)
The negative square root of 16 can be either +4 or -4 . Both are correct.
There is no square root of negative 8, negative numbers can never be square rooted since no two of the same number can go into a negative number, for example 16's square root is 4 and -4 since 4x4=16 and -4x-4=16, but -16 doesn't have a square root since -4 just turns into a positive when multiplied to itself.
-16 i think
Positive or negative 4i
The square root of the fraction 16 over 169 is 4 over 13.
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.
4 over square root of 16 simplifies to 1 !
The square root of a real number is not always positive. The square root of any positive number is positive, the square root of zero is zero (not positive), and the square root of a negative number is complex (i.e. neither positive nor negative). The square root of 16 = -4 or 4. The square root of 0 = 0 The square root of -16 = -4i or 4i
Take the square root of the square root of the number (that is the fourth root of the number), for example: √√16 = √(√16) = √4 = 2 24 = 16 ⇒ 2 is the fourth root of 16.
1.25 or 5/4
4i square root of 16 is 4, but negative square roots aren't real so the i means its imaginary.
A positive number has two square roots, its principal (positive) root and its negative root. This is because a negative number multiplied by a negative number equals a positive number. In this instance, the square roots of 256 are 16 and -16.
Positive 4 and Negative 4
Yes.You can square root any number. Though, please note, if you square root a negative number then you end up with what is called an imaginary number.square root of 65,536 = 256square root of 256 = 16square root of 16 = 4square root of 4 = 2square root of 2 = 1.41421 (rounded)
No. It's +4 and -4.
The square root of -16 is: 4 i
The square root of -16 is 4 i
