## Answers ( )

Answer:C) To square a number, multiply the number by itself.

Step-by-step explanation:A) is incorrect because square roots are made by multiplying the number to itself.

2 × 2 is the same as 2²

3 × 3 is the same as 3²

4 × 4 is the same as 4²

2² = 4

3² = 9

4² = 16

B) is incorrect because the inverse of squaring is finding the square root.

2² inverse is √4

3² inverse is √9

4² inverse is √16

D) is incorrect because perfect squares can be odd or even

A perfect square is a number made by squaring a whole number.

4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81, 100, 121, and 144 are all examples of perfect squares.
