The square root of 100 is 10, and it is a rational number.

10 and 12. 10 is the square root of 100, and 12 is the square root of 144. The square root of 139 is about 11.79

Work it out with a few clues. Only a 3 can be the last digit of number whose square has a 9 at the end. There are 4 digits in the square, so the root is greater than 31, and less than 100. The square of 5 = 25, so the square of 50 = 2500

No, 3.14 is not an irrational number.

Take any number greater than 10. Multiply it by itself. The answer will be a square number greater than 100 - and there is an infinitey of such numbers.

It is neither but if you mean the square root of 100 then it is 10 which is a rational number

It is neither, it is an imaginary number.

It is 10 which is a rational number.

The root of ab is the same as the root of a multiplied by the root of b. So root 200 = root 100 x root 2 root 100 is 10, root 2 is an irrational number. Multiplying 10 by an irrational number gives an irrational number. Therefore, root 200 never ends.

No. However, the square root of any positive integer that is NOT a perfect square, IS irrational.

It is irrational, because it is not a perfect square. For example, if you have a number that is perfect like the square root of 100, it would be 10, which is a rational number. An irrational number like 16.4 which would be a not so accurate result like 6.447583839, those are irrational numbers. Hope this helps!

No. The square root of most numbers is irrational - only if the number of which you take the root happen to be perfect squares, do you get a rational root. In this case, to take the square root of 3/4, 3 is not a perfect square, so the root is not rational. Or you can take .75 to be 75/100; once again, 75 is not a perfect square, so the root is irrational.

Neither. It's imaginary.

Yes, 102 isn't a square number (1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81, 100, 121, 144) so the square root of 102 will keept going forever and is irrational.

The square of 100 is 10000, which is rational.The square root of 100 is 10, which is also rational.

The square root of 100 are 10 and -10.

Not necessarily. The square root of 2.56 equals 1.6, and the square root of 0.25 equals 0.5, for two examples. If the decimal represents a rational number that is a fraction of two perfect squares, then the square root will be a rational number. The two examples I gave were 2.56 = 256/100, and 0.25 = 1/4.
