# 5.7 Simplify and use square roots  (Page 6/8)

 Page 6 / 8

## Writing exercises

Why is there no real number equal to $\sqrt{-64}?$

What is the difference between ${9}^{2}$ and $\sqrt{9}?$

Answers will vary. 9 2 reads: “nine squared” and means nine times itself. The expression $\sqrt{9}$ reads: “the square root of nine” which gives us the number such that if it were multiplied by itself would give you the number inside of the square root.
