**ok over there is a the majority of confusion below soI**will check out if Ican assist to straighten it the end for that is quite important.

You are watching: What is the square root of 49

Firstly 7*7=49 and also (-7)*(-7)=49

-----------------------------------------------------

Now if the inquiry is $$sqrt49$$ then the answer is 7 (Just 7 **NOT** -7)

This is due to the fact that if the square root is written right into the initial question only the optimistic answer counts. That is a **convention**.

----------------------------------------------------

However, if the inquiry is

$$\x^2=49 qquad findquad x \\ $That is different since the square root is no written right into the initial question.$\\ x=pmsqrt47=pm7$$

---------------------------------------------------

**Please, if you want to asking questions execute so because this is important.**

The convention is that we assume the positive root,* unless* we are addressing an equation...

So.... √49 = 7

But

x2 = 49

x = ±√49 = ± 7
