Here’s how to square a number:
- Make yourself a square.
- Mark it off in as many boxes across the top and down the sides as the number you want to square.
- Write in the numbers in order, beginning in the top left hand square.
- Look in the bottom right hand square. The numeral there will be the square of your number. The original number is the square root of the number in the bottom right square.
Try it for yourself! Larger numbers may take bigger paper.
