    No. \[100 = 50*2 \] \[50^2 = 2500\]

    Right. So since 10 squared is 100, the square root of 100 is 10. I'm not sure how you're expected to write a paragraph though.

    Well, 16 is 32/2, so 16 + 1/2 = 32/2 + 1/2 = 33/2

    But again, I'm not sure what is supposed to take up the rest of the paragraph.
