August 12, 2019

Perfect Squares of two digit numbers that end with 5

Step 1 - multiply the first digit by the next consecutive integer
Step 2 - place 25 at the end of your result

Lets try an example

15 x15 = ?
Step 1 - the first digit is 1
the next consecutive integer after 1 is 2
1 x 2 = 2
Step 2 - place 25 at the end of 2
this is 225
15 x 15 = 225

Next example
25 x 25= ?
step 1 - 2X3 = 6
step 2 - 625
25 x 25 = 625

Final example
35 x 35=?
step 1 - 3 x 4 = 12
step 2 - 1225
35 x 45 = 1225

Practice these on your own, and verify with the use of a calculator

45 x 45 =

55 x 55 =

65 x 65 =

75 x 75 =

85 x 85 =

95 x 95 =
