# What is the perfect square of 48?

Jun 27, 2015

The square of $48$ is $48 \times 48 = 2 , 304$

#### Explanation:

The word "perfect" is this question is not needed.

A perfect square is the square of a whole number. So the square of $48$ is, by definition, a perfect square.

For example: 9 is the square of 3, we say "9 is a perfect square" ("it is the square of 3"). We do not need to say (and so we don't) that "9 is the perfect square of 3".

There is no such thing as "the imperfect square of a number"
