# Can the square of an integer be a negative number?

The square of a number is the value of power 2 of the number.

## Answer: No. The square of an integer can't be a negative number.

The square of a number can be found by multiplying a number by itself.

**Explanation:**

If we find the square of an integer, say x, then x × x = x^{2}.

Here, x^{2} is greater than or equal to 0.
