Which of the following numbers is closest to five?
00:00:07.480 --> 00:00:14.610
We’re given five different square roots and we want to know which of these is closest to five.
00:00:16.680 --> 00:00:21.540
So let’s think about what we know about squares and square roots.
00:00:21.880 --> 00:00:28.530
Three squared equals nine, and the square root of nine equals three.
00:00:30.920 --> 00:00:35.530
We wanna know what square root is close to five.
00:00:37.600 --> 00:00:44.090
A related question and to answer that, we need to think what is five squared.
00:00:44.130 --> 00:00:45.940
What would five squared be?
00:00:47.580 --> 00:00:53.350
Five squared is 25, and the square root of 25 equals five.
00:00:54.990 --> 00:01:01.770
If we look closely at our answer choices, only one of them is close to five.
00:01:03.570 --> 00:01:08.660
The square root of 24 will be the closest to the square root of 25.
00:01:09.030 --> 00:01:12.000
The square root of 24 will be almost five.
00:01:13.970 --> 00:01:19.460
Out of our five answer choices, the square root of 24 is the closest to five.
