### What is the square root of 16x squared?

If you square an expression and then take the square root, the
squaring and the square root cancel one another, EXCEPT that the
sign will be positive. Thus, if you square 16x, and then take the
square root, the answer can be 16x or -16x, depending on whether
"x" is positive or negative. Or if you only square x, and then take
the square root of the entire expression, it would be 4x or -4x
(once again, depending on whether "x" is positive or negative).

### What is square root of -8?

There is no square root of negative 8, negative numbers can
never be square rooted since no two of the same number can go into
a negative number, for example 16's square root is 4 and -4 since
4x4=16 and -4x-4=16, but -16 doesn't have a square root since -4
just turns into a positive when multiplied to itself.
