If you square a negative number does it become positive?
The Square of a number is the value of the number raised to the power of 2.
Answer: Yes. If a number is squared, it becomes positive.
The square of a number can be found by multiplying the number by itself.
The product of two negative numbers is always positive. If we find the square of a negative number, say -x, where x > 0, then (-x) × (-x) = x2.
Here, x2 > 0.
Therefore, the square of a negative number is always positive.
