(MATHEMATICS) each positive number has another number that, when multiplied times itself, equals that number. So, for example, 4 has a square root of 2 (2 x 2 = 4).

The square root of a negative number is an imaginary number. Imaginary numbers are not, by themselves, useful solutions to math problems; but they can be used to find them.
BILL: Anna, we have a rectangle that's 3 x as long as it is wide, and it encloses an area of 300 square meters. What are the dimensions?

ANNA: Well, that's like 3 squares of 100 square meters. The square root of 100 is 10, so the rectangle is 10 by 30.


The logarithm of a square root is one half the log of the number itself; hence, the natural log of 25 is 3.2189, while the natural log of 5 is 1.6094.

A sexual position similar to a threesome, only with four people in a square formation. Usually involving two men and two women they all lie in a square formation, with the men facing inwards and women facing outwards. So each person is giving oral and revieving oral, and no two people of the same sex touch eachother.

The square root of a pinecone is an acorn. This is because pinecones are made from acorns. Around 3-4 of them make a pinecone. This is done by putting them into a crafting table; the result comes out with a pinecone. Just be aware that the bisectors are unstable in the reactors from the perpendicularity of the pineconium.
What is the square root of pinecone?
