**17 squared**, (17)^{2}, is the number you get when multiplying 17 times 17.

It can also be looked at as exponentiation involving the base 17 and the exponent 2.

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

The square of 17 is a perfect square because the number is the product of the two equal integers 17.

It can be written as 17 × 17 or in exponential form.

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

The inverse operation of squaring seventeen is extracting the square root of 17, explained here.

In the next section we elaborate on *what is 17 squared* and there you can also find our calculator.

## What is 17 Squared?

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

Hence, a square with side length 17 has an area of 289.

17 squared equals the sum of the first 17 odd numbers:

In addition, the number can be calculated from 16 squared using the following identity:

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

(17)^{2} = 16^{2} + 16 + 17 = 16^{2} + 33 = 289

It can be also be computed from 16 squared with this identity:

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

(17)^{2} = 2 x 16^{2} – 15^{2} + 2 = 2 x 256 – 225 + 2 = 289

The difference between the perfect square of 17 and its predecessor, 16, can be calculated with the identity n^{2} − (n − 1)^{2} = 2n − 1:

2 x 17 – 1 = 33 = (17)^{2} – 16^{2} = 289 – 256 = 33

17 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 17 are of the form 8n + 1, because (2n + 1)^{2} = 4n × (n + 1) + 1;

n × (n + 1) is an even number.
