### What is the square root of a square?

&radic;(a^2) That is |a| (the absolute value of a) Because if a is positive, a^2 is positive, and since &radic; is a positive square root, &radic;(a^2) is a. If a is negative, a^2 is positive, and since &radic; is a positive square root, &radic;(a^2) is -a. So if a is positive, &radic;(a^2) is positive (which is a) If a is negative, &radic;(a^2) is also positive (which is -a) So &radic;(a^2) is |a| for every a.
