A square is a regular quadrilateral
In geometry, a square is a regular quadrilateral. This means that
it has four equal sides and four equal angles (90-degree angles, or right angles). A square with vertices ABCD would be denoted ABCD.
The perimeter of a square whose
sides have length t is
and the area is

In mathematics, a square root of a number x is a number r such that r2 = x, or, in other words, a
number r whose square (the result of multiplying
the number by itself, or r × r) is x. For example, 4 is a square
root of 16 because 42 = 16. (Our solved example in mathguru.com uses this concept)
Example 1, by discussion
Consider the perfect square 2809 = 532. Use the
duplex method to find the square root of 2,809.
Set down the number in groups
of two digits.
Define a divisor,
a dividend and a quotient to find the root.
Given 2809. Consider the first group, 28.
Find the nearest perfect square below that group.
The root of that perfect square is the first digit of our root.
Since 28 > 25 and 25 = 52, take 5 as the first
digit in the square root.
For the divisor take double this first digit (2 · 5),
which is 10.
Next, set up a division framework with a colon.
28: 0 9 is the dividend and 5: is the quotient.
Put a colon to the right of 28 and 5 and keep the colons lined
up vertically. The duplex is calculated only on quotient digits
to the right of the colon.
Calculate the remainder.
28: minus 25: is 3:.
Append the remainder on the left of the next digit to get the
Here, append 3 to the next dividend digit 0, which makes the new
dividend 30. The divisor 10 goes into 30 just 3 times. (No reserve needed here
for subsequent deductions.)
Repeat the operation.
The zero remainder appended to 9. Nine is the next dividend.
This provides a digit to the right of the colon so deduct the
duplex, 32 = 9.
Subtracting this duplex from the dividend 9, a zero remainder
Ten into zero is zero. The next root digit is zero. The next
duplex is 2(3·0) = 0.
The dividend is zero. This is an exact square root, 53. (Our
