(Square root of 12) times i.

you cant take the square root of a negative number

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.

The numbers are: -4 +square root of 12 and -4 -square root of 12

The square root of negative 37 is: ~6.0827 i

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.

Nothing. You cannot have a square root of a negative number. The square root of negative one is called i, but i is an imaginary number. It does not exist and does not follow the properties of real numbers. (For example, if a and b are positive, then the square root of a times the square root of b is the square root of ab. But the square root of -7 is not the square root of 7 times i.)
