Square Root 1 to 25In mathematics, one concepts that we learn early on is squaring a number (multiplication a number with itself). Square root is just inverse of square. Square root of any given number is the value, when multiplied with itself results in the original number. Square roots are crucial in mathematics. For instance, square root of 81 is 9, since 9 * 9 = 81. They are useful in solving equations, applying the Pythagorean theorem, measuring distances, calculating standard deviation, exploring complex numbers, etc. Square roots are essential tools for problemsolving. DefinitionSquare root of any nonnegative real number is a value that, when multiplied by itself, results in original number. We denote square root of a long nonnegative real number "x," by the symbol "√x" or "x^(1/2)". The square root symbol is "√" termed radical sign or radix, and the number whose square root is being calculated is called radicand. For instance, in √25 = 5, 25 is the radicand and 5 is square root of 25. Basic Properties of Square RootsFundamental properties of square roots that we use extensively in mathematics and other related fields are:
Square Roots of Numbers 1 to 25:Now let's learn the principal square roots of numbers from 1 to 25.
Methods of Calculating the Square RootThe square root of the rest of the numbers can be calculated by following three methods: 1) First method: Prime FactorizationIt is the easiest and simple method of finding a square root. You can follow following steps to find square roots by prime factorization method.
After multiplication, the product that came out is considered the square root of the required number. For example, let's take a number 576 and find its square root with this method. The prime factor of 576 should be: = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 = 24 Therefore square root of 576 is 24. 2) Second Method: Long Division MethodThe long division method is lengthy and slightly challenging to understand at once but suitable for finding the square root of large numbers. This method not only let us find square roots of perfect squares but also of nonperfect squares with high accuracy.
C) Third Method: Repeated Subtraction MethodYou can calculate the square root of a number by subtracting successive odd number from a perfect square until you reach zero. The step at which you reach zero, will be your answer. Keep in mind that if the given number is not perfect square, you will not get zero at any step. For example, lets us use this method to find the square root of 225. The steps for repeated subtraction for number 225 are as follows: 1: 225  1 = 224 2: 224  3 = 221 3: 221  5 = 216 4: 216  7 = 209 5: 209  9 = 200 6: 200  11 = 189 7: 189  13 = 176 8: 176  15 = 161 9: 161  17 = 144 10: 144  19 = 125 11: 125  21 = 104 12: 104  23 = 81 13: 81  25 = 56 14: 56  27 = 29 15: 29  29 = 0 You can see that after repetitive subtraction of 225 from 1, we reach zero (0) in the fifteenth step. So we can conclude that 15 is the square root of 225 (√225= 15). We can verify this by finding the square root 225 from another method. Applications and Examples:Square roots find applications in diverse fields, including mathematics, physics, engineering, finance, and computer science. Some applications of square roots are:
Historical Perspective:The square root is not a new concept as the ancient Indians, Chinese, Egyptians, and Greeks used it. The origin of "√" the root symbol has many stories. Many scholars assume that the square root originates from the letter 'r' and that the Latin word radix's first letter, r, stands for root. Another origin story of the square root symbol came from the Arabic letter ڄ which was placed in its original form ﺟ in the word جذر  root. One should remember that the Arabic language is written from right to left. Initially, the square root symbol (√) was like this, which didn't include a horizontal "bar" over the number inside the square root or radical symbol. In Latin, the "bar" is called "vinculum," which means bond. Now, in the present time, the square root symbol with a bar (vinculum) is used every day. Albert Girard has suggested the notation of the higher degrees of a root (more than square root) where he put the degree index within the opening of the radical sign?for example, ³√ or ⁴√. The real meaning of the word radical is foundational, reaching the root cause but not farreaching or extreme. Conclusion:Understanding square roots and being able to calculate them is crucial in both mathematics and daily life. Square roots have several applications in mathematics and other related subjects. Without the help of square roots we won't be able to understand complex numbers, or use Pythagoras theorem in right triangle, measure distances two points of Cartesian plan, or solve quadratic equations. Square roots are an essential tool that unlocks mysteries of numbers and enables us to explore the depths of mathematical concepts and practical problems alike.
