Finding the Square of a Number - Other Patterns in Squares

notes

Find the square of 23 so quickly . The answer is not so easy and we may need to multiply 23 by 23. There is a way to find this without having to multiply 23 × 23.
We know 23 = 20 + 3
Therefore  23^2
= (20 + 3)^2 = 20(20 + 3) + 3(20 + 3)
= 20^2 + 20 × 3 + 3 × 20 + 3^2
= 400 + 60 + 60 + 9 = 529

1)  Other patterns in squares :
Consider a number with unit digit 5, i.e., a5
(a5)^2 = (10a + 5)^2
= 10a(10a + 5) + 5(10a + 5)
= 100a^2 + 50a + 50a + 25
= 100a(a + 1) + 25
= a(a + 1) hundred + 25
Consider the following pattern:
252 = 625 = (2 × 3) hundreds + 25
352 = 1225 = (3 × 4) hundreds + 25
