# Powerful Patterns: Square Roots

## There are many numerical patterns to find in mathematics! The one on this Web page is about square roots.

Observe what happens when you multiply **the square root of 2** by *powers of ***10** under the __radical__ symbol:

See the pattern? On* even-numbered* *powers *of **10**, **the square root of 2** is multiplied by a power of **10**; on *odd-numbered* *ones*,** the square root of 5** is multiplied by **2** multiplied by a power of **10**. (To the right of each equal sign, of course!)

Observe what happens when you multiply **the square root of 3** by *powers of ***100** under the __radical__ symbol:

See the pattern of this one? **The square root of 3** is multiplied by a power of **10** to the right of each equal sign!

### Speaking of patterns, maybe you already seen some other numerical math patterns that other mathematicians already discovered & published! (Besides me or you; any open-minded person can be a great mathematician, like me!)
