# What is the square root of x^{2}?

The square root of any number can be expressed using the formula: √x = x^{1/2}.

## Answer: The square root of x^{2} is x.

A square root is a number that we need to multiply by itself to get the original number.

**Explanation:**

Here, x^{2} = (x) × (x)

So, x is the square root of x^{2 } as by definition x is multiplied by itself to get x^{2}.

√x^{2} = (x^{2})^{1/2} = x^{1} = x
