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

Irrational.

A perfect square root is where the square root of a number equals another whole number. For example, the square root of 144 is 12. 12 is a whole number thus 144 is a perfect square root.

The principal square root is a positive number which, when multiplied by itself, gives the original number. The second square root is the negative of the principal square root. So, for example, starting with 144. The principal square root is 12 because 12*12 = 144 and the second square root is -12.

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.
