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.
