Algebra: Square Roots of Algebraic Terms

In this worksheet, students simplify the square roots of algebraic terms.

'Algebra: Square Roots of Algebraic Terms' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 3

Curriculum topic:   Algebra

Curriculum subtopic:   Use and Interpret Algebraic Notation

Difficulty level:  

Worksheet Overview

When we find the square of an algebraic term, we simply multiply it by itself.

Thus the square of 3a4 is   3a4 x 3a4 = 9a8


The reverse of squaring is finding the square root.

So 9a8 = 3a4

(i.e. we find the square root of the number and halve the index)
