Yes! The square root of a number is the number that when you multiply it by itself, gives you the original number. Thirty six has two square roots, +6 and -6. +6 times +6 = 36 AND -6 times -6 = 36.

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.)

What is a number that is a square root of a negative number?

I think it is Xi (whatever the square root of the positive is times i). i is an imaginary number that when you square it, it becomes negative. eg. the square root of -4 is 2i. Without "i", it would be impossible to square root a negative number, as any number times itself will always equal a positive.
