Only 1 rectangle can be built with a Prime number of square tiles.

No, there are no prime numbers that are also square numbers. Prime numbers are only divisible by 1 and themselves, while square numbers have integer square roots. Since the square root of a prime number is not an integer, a prime number cannot be a square number.

4,9,25. Any square with a prime number as its root.

No. To be prime it has to be divisible only by itself and one. That means that no numbers multiply to be it. The only possible exception is one. In the math world it may have been decided whether or not one is a prime number, but that is debatable and I'm not aware of the answer. If 1 was considered a prime number, then it would be the only prime square.

No. A prime number is divisible only by itself and 1. Squares have other factors.

There is not a number that is square, even, and prime. A prime number is a number with two and only two factors: 1 and itself. The only even prime number is 2, because all other even numbers are, by definition, divisible by 2, which means they have more than two factors and thus cannot be prime. A square number is the product of multiplying a number by itself, so the number which is multiplied by itsefl to create a square number is a factor of that number, meaning it has more than two factors, so it cannot be prime. A prime number cannot be even (except for the number 2) and cannot be a square number. A square number can be an even number, but can also be an odd number.

No. A prime number is divisible only by itself and 1. Squares have other factors.

The square of any prime number has exactly 3 factors. They are: 1). 1 2). the number itself 3). the prime number which is its square-root

There is only one even prime number and that is 2 as all over even numbers can be divided by 2 and 2 is not square so there isn't a number less than 100 that is an even prime square number.
