Just take the square root, and put a minus sign in front of it.

The square root of 196 is 14.

The square root of 196 is 14.

The square root of 196 is 14

Square root 400 - square root 196 = 6

It is plus or minus 14 because 14*14 = 196 or -14*-14 = 196

sqrt(-196) = 14i where i is the imaginary square root of -1.

196 = 14² → √196 is rational.

√81 + √196 = 23

sqrt(196) = 14 ====

The square root of 196 is 14. Fourteen is a rational number.

196's prime numbers are (2) (2) (7) (7). For example, if you square those prime numbers you would get 14. Why? Because u need equal integers within a square root, so that you can take that integer outside the square root. With the same knowledge, we can apply ask the question whether 196 is a cube root. If it's a cube root, then it needs to have 3 same integer (ex: 3x3x3x4x4x4x; 2x2x2x7x7x7). As you can see we don't have third same integer. Also, even if it is 2x2x2x7x7, it cannot be a cube root because it is missing the third 7. So the answer is that 196 is a perfect square and not a perfect cube. Note: you cannot have a square root of a negative integer, if the question is "is -196 a perfect square or a perfect cube", then the answer is neither. Of course you can SQUARE the negative number (ex: (-2)^2=+/- 4), but you cannot mathematically square root a negative number unless your using the imaginary integer "i". I hope it answers your question and just a bit more.
