Yes because the square root of 144 is 12

The negative square root of -144 is -12i - that is -12 times the square root of minus 1, ie √-144 = 12√-1. The above is a complex number, which I suspect is not the answer you wanted; there is no real number that is the square root of a negative number If you wanted the negative square root of 144, then it is -12.

The square root of an answer is a number times itself to get that number so the square root of 4 is 2 the square root of 144 is 12 because 12 times itself gives us the answer of 144

the square root of 144 is 12. the 'square root' means what number times itself equals an answer. (144) the answer is 12.

The square root of 144 is 12 which is a rational number

The square root of 12 is not a rational number. In fact, it is a radical number. It's simplified form would be 2 multiplied by the square root of 3.

Yes, it is -12 or +12, both of which are rational.

√0.01 = √(1/100) = √12/√102 = 1/10 (which is a rational number)

sqrt(144) = 12. 12 is the ratio of 12 to 1, so it's nice and rational.

Irrational.

If the square root of a natural number is not an integer, then it is irrational. Another way to look at it: if a natural number N falls between two perfect squares, then the square root of N is irrational.So in this case, 12 is between 9 (3 squared) and 16 (4 squared). So the square root of 12 is between 3 and 4, and also the square root of 12 is irrational.
