Why do you need to study squares and square roots?

It so happens that squares and square roots (as well as other powers and roots) frequently occur in different scientific problems - physics, for example. An engineer must know such things. (Engineerings is basically "applied science".) If you are not planning to work in an engineering field, you'll probably not use much square roots, or other advanced math.


What is the square root of 169 196?

169 and 196 are perfect squares. Their square roots are 13 and 14 respectively. The perfect squares from 1^2 to 16^2 are: 1,4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81, 100, 144, 169, 196, 225, 256. It is useful to memorize the perfect squares, as it makes estimating square roots easier. In case you wanted to find the square root of 169,196, the answer is roughly 411.334414... The square roots of integers which are not perfect squares are irrational, so they can not be expressed exactly as a sequence of digits.
