Explain the relationship between "squaring" a number and finding the "square root" of a number. Use an example to further explain your answer.
Squaring a number means raising it to the power of 2
The square root of a number undoes a square of a number.
So square root of x^2 is x
x squared is x^2
Let x = 5.
x squared = 5^2 = 25
Square root of 25 = square root of 5^2 = 5
