To square any number you simply multiply it by itself. Therefore the square of 5 is 5 x 5 = 25.
In this video lesson, I show you how to use a much easier way to carry out the square of any two-digit number. I have also included a nice trick for any two-digit numbers ending in 5.
I believe it is always good at looking at different methods of carrying out your calculations and then use a method that suits you. This method you can easily carry out in your head without the need to write it down.
Watch the video and then practice on paper and in your head.
