If you think squares and square roots are the same thing, you're mistaken. They are the same type of thing, but opposites. When you find the square of a number, you multiply it twice by itself. Square roots are when you find what number an be squared to get this number. So, the answer would be 19,456. I'm in 7th grade and I know that. Oh no, I wrote more numbers. Sorry to you mathematically challenged people who seem to have a problem comprehending those.
