It is a question that has puzzled mathematicians for centuries: how to square root 0?

The answer, while not immediately obvious, will surprise you. You see, the square root of any number can be found by taking the number itself and multiplying it by 1/2.

This means that if you want to find the square root of 2 (or 22), then all you have to do is multiply 2 * 1.5 = 3!

In this way, you can find the square root of any number. For instance, 264 = (264) * (0.25), and so by multiplying both sides we get that 264/64 = 64/25 which is equal to 16! You can use this trick for any number with a fractional value just like in our example above: 0.75*(0.75)*(0.33) or 512*1024*.

This means if you want to calculate the square root of an odd-numbered exponent such as 25, then take one-half and multiply it by itself twice on each side of your equation!
