How to Square a Fraction?

TopBefore learning how to Square a fraction it is necessary to know what the fraction is? In mathematics, a number that is written in the form of x / y is known as fraction. 3/2, 7/5, 17/10, 21/20, 100/26 all are the examples of Fractions. There are different types of fractions which are shown below:
Proper fraction – If any fraction has numerator value smaller than the denominator then the fraction is said to be a proper fraction. Example: 1/5, 3/14, 93/151.
Improper fraction – If any fraction has numerator values larger than the denominator then fraction is said to be an improper fraction. Example: 5/2, 150/125.
Mixed fraction - Any fraction in which the Whole Number and the proper fraction are combined together is known as mixed fraction. Example: 4 (8/10). Here we will discuss how to square a fraction:
To square any fraction number we need to follow some steps which are shown below:
Step 1: To square any fraction number first of all we have to take any fraction value.
Step 2: Now apply square to given fraction.
Step 3: In other words squaring is multiplication of number by itself.
Step 4: Multiply numerator value to the numerator and denominator value to the denominator to get square of fraction.
Suppose we have fraction number (6 / 13) and we have to square the given fraction number. We can write this number in square form as:
= (6 / 13)2, as we know that square is multiplication of number by itself, so we can write it as;
= (6 / 13) * (6 / 13), Now multiply numerator value to the numerator and denominator value to the denominator. So after squaring this fraction number we get:
= 36/169. This is how we can square any fraction number.
