If you are playing a round and at the end of 18 holes you are tied due to your 5 stroke handicap - do you go to the first hole and give another 5 strokes or do you play square?

According to the USGA Handicap Manual, "Rule 33-6 empowers the committee in charge of the competition to determine how and when a halved match or a stroke play tie is decided. The decision should be published in advance." So there's no firm answer to your question. The USGA recommends that the handicap be assigned in proportion to the number of holes being played in the tie breaking playoff. In other words, if it was a 9 hole playoff you would get half of your five (three, they recommend round up 1/2 strokes). If it was a four hole playoff. you would get 5*4/18, which would be one.

You should use your handicap allowance. The handicapping is used on the stroke index of the hole. If your first hole was stroke index 2 you would get a shot.

It depends which hole you're playing. I think you have the handicap idea mixed up. When you give the strokes, you don't just take them off the top, you take them off the 5 hardest holes on the course. So if your playoff includes any of the 5 hardest holes, then you will get one stroke per each of those holes. If not, then you're playing straight up.

Sure. Take the fourth power of any natural number, for example 24 = 16. It square root is a perfect square, in this case 22. As another example, the square root of 34 = 32.

You can't convert that. You can convert from one linear unit to another linear unit, or from one square unit to another square unit, but not between linear units and square units.

You could be playing four square, or, perhaps tennis or basketball. However, you could say the courts used for tennis and basketball are rectangles.

I think you are referring to Times Square. Herald Square is another potential answer.
