    square root of a number (like 36) means if you multiply it by itself you get 36 what is -6* -6 ?

    when multiplying, 2 -'s become a + (one of those mysteries) and 6*6 is 36 so yes, -6* -6 is 36 that shows that -6 is a square root (of 36) because -6 times itself = 36

    yes, -6 real numbers have 2 square roots, one is positive and the other is negative for 36, the two square roots are -6 and 6 here they want the negative square root, so that is -6
