What does the Square Root Symbol (√) Mean?

In mathematics, a square root symbol () is called a radical. The natural number represented by the symbol is called a root.  The symbol may also be used to calculate not only the square root, but also the cube root, fourth root, hundredth root, and so on. All we need to do is preface the root with a small number.

Simply put, the square root of a number is the value that is multiplied by itself to yield the number. The square root of 25 is 5. This is because 5 x 5 = 25. The square root symbol stands for the principal square root, which is the positive number.

In everyday life, we use the vinculum, the line that extends from the top to the root. If using text on the Internet, these can, however, be omitted.
