36=6*6 making it a perfect square but 36.5 can only be approximated and won't be an exact value. However, a number like 2.25 is a perfect square because 1.5*1.5=2.25 so some decimals can be perfect squares.

depends on the definition i think \(0.04\) is a perfect square because it is the square of \(0.2\)
