How do you Find the Square Root of 12?

TopSquare root is indicated by symbol (√), which is also called as radical symbol and expression which contains radical or Square root symbol will be called as radical expression. Mathematically, square root of any variable 'P' is indicated by √P. If expression √P is equals to 'Q' then √P = Q. This can also be written as P = Q2. Since symbol ‘√’ is used for square root that’s why when we remove square root, square is used. If we use a Cube root then it will be written as”
∛P = Q, P = Q3, Similarly the fourth root will be given as ∜P = Q or P = Q4,

Let’s try to understand the concept of square root by taking an example as: √121 = 11, as 121 = (11)2.
Here square root of 121 is 11 (112 = 121) and 12 is square root of 144 (√144 = 12) since 122 = 144.
Basic square roots are those which are used very commonly. These are square roots of 2 and 3. Value of these square roots must be memorized. Square root of 2 and 3 are given as
√2 =1 .414 and √3 = 1.732.
Lets learn how do you find the square root of 12 using the concept of square root law.
Square root of 12 will be written as √12. Number 12 can be broken into product of 4 and 3. Square root of 4 is 2 and square root of 3 is 1.734, hence it will be easy to obtain the solution which shown below:
√12 = √(4 * 3) = √4 * √3 = 2 * 1.732 = 3.464.
