**15 squared**, (15)^{2}, is the number you get when multiplying 15 times 15.

It can also be looked at as exponentiation involving the base 15 and the exponent 2.

The term is usually pronounced fifteen times fifteen or fifteen squared.

The square of 15 is a perfect square because the number is the product of the two equal integers 15.

It can be written as 15 × 15 or in exponential form.

Read on to learn everything about the number fifteen squared, including useful identities.

## Calculator

(15)^{2} = 225

15 × 15 = 225

The inverse operation of squaring fifteen is extracting the square root of 15, explained here.

In the next section we elaborate on *what is 15 squared* and there you can also find our calculator.

## What is 15 Squared?

A square is a flat shape with four equal sides; every angle is 90°.

Hence, a square with side length 15 has an area of 225.

15 squared equals the sum of the first 15 odd numbers:

In addition, the number can be calculated from 14 squared using the following identity:

n^{2} = (n − 1)^{2} + (n − 1) + n = (n − 1)^{2} + (2n − 1)

(15)^{2} = 14^{2} + 14 + 15 = 14^{2} + 29 = 225

It can be also be computed from 14 squared with this identity:

n^{2} = 2 x (n − 1)^{2} − (n − 2)^{2} + 2

(15)^{2} = 2 x 14^{2} – 13^{2} + 2 = 2 x 196 – 169 + 2 = 225

The difference between the perfect square of 15 and its predecessor, 14, can be calculated with the identity n^{2} − (n − 1)^{2} = 2n − 1:

2 x 15 – 1 = 29 = (15)^{2} – 14^{2} = 225 – 196 = 29

15 is odd, and the square numbers of odd numbers are also odd: (2n + 1)^{2} = 4 × (n^{2} + n) + 1.

Squares of odd numbers like 15 are of the form 8n + 1, because (2n + 1)^{2} = 4n × (n + 1) + 1;

n × (n + 1) is an even number.
