The square root of a given positive real number is another number which when multiplied with itself is the given number.

Square Root of Polynomials

The square root of a given positive real number is another number which when multiplied with itself is the given number.

Similarly, the square root of a given expression p(x) is another expression q(x) which when multiplied by itself gives p(x), that is, q (x). q ( x ) = p(x)

So, |q (x)| = p(x) where |q (x)|  is the absolute value of q(x).

The following two methods are used to find the square root of a given expression

(i) Factorization method

(ii) Division method
