I don't understand the different between square root and squared.

Can someone help me with this? Topic is the question

Hey @victorioussheep! They happen to be exact opposites of each other.
This is three squared: \(3^2\)
This is the square root of three: \(\sqrt{3}\)\(3^2 = 3 \cdot 3 = 9\)
\(\sqrt{9}=3\)\(5^2=25\)
\(\sqrt{25}=5\)Hope this helps! Feel free to ask if you still have any questions

The square root of 16 is 4
4^2 = 16
