Yes. Any number that is the result of a whole number multiplied by itself is a square number. Since 15 squared (152) = 225, the square root of 225 is 15.

Yes, you can, but it starts getting complicated. You can, for example have a number raised to an exponent that is itself a number raised to an exponent, or you can have a number raised to an exponent and the result raised to another exponent.
