# What is the square root of -6?

Jul 17, 2016

$= \sqrt{6} i$

#### Explanation:

Negative numbers have no real square roots, so I assume that you are working with imaginary numbers.

Using the property of imaginary numbers that ${i}^{2} = - 1$
we can right the question as:
$\sqrt{6 {i}^{2}}$
$= \sqrt{6} i$
