All positive real #’s have 2 sq. roots. The positive sq.root is called the principal root, and the other is the negative sq. root. Sq. roots are written with the radical symbol. The # inside is called the radicand. (read plus or minus) is used to write both sq. roots of a positive #. Perfect squares- #’s whose sq. roots are integers. Irrational #’s- sq. roots of #’s that aren’t perfect. All positive real #’s have 2 sq. roots. The positive sq.root is called the principal root, and the other is the negative sq. root.
