Definition of Square

A square is the sum of the number multiplied by itself.

It is as simple as 6 x 6 = 36 or 7 x 7 = 49

A square looks like this 6² = 36

The small ‘²’ implies that the given number be multiplied twice by the same number.

Examples of Square Numbers

  • 1 Squared= 1= 1 × 1 = 1
  • 2 Squared= 2= 2 × 2 = 4
  • 3 Squared= 3= 3 × 3 = 9
  • 4 Squared= 4= 4 × 4 = 16
  • 5 Squared= 5= 5 × 5 = 25
  • 6 Squared= 6= 6 × 6 = 36

Squaring Negative Numbers

Negative numbers can also be made into squares.

(-10 x -10 = 100)

The number turns positive because two negatives make a positive.
