Read on to learn everything about the number nine hundred and eighty-one squared, including the useful identities.

9812 = 962361
981 x 981 = 962361

The inverse operation of squaring nine hundred and eighty-one is extracting the square root of 981, explained here. In the next section we elaborate on what is 981 squared, and there you can also find our calculator.

## What is 981 Squared

A square is a flat shape with four equal sides; every angle is 90°. Hence, a square with side length 981 has an area of 962361.

981 squared equals the sum of the first 981 odd numbers:

$\sum_{i=1}^{981} (2i-1)$ = 962361

In addition, the number can be calculated from 980 squared using the following identity:

n2 = (n − 1)2 + (n − 1) + n = (n − 1)2 + (2n − 1)
9812 = 9802 + 980 + 981 = 9802 + 1961 = 962361

It can be also be computed from 980 squared with this identity:

n2 = 2 x (n − 1)2 − (n − 2)2 + 2
9812 = 2 x 9802 – 9792 + 2 = 2 x 960400 – 958441 + 2 = 962361

The difference between the perfect square of 981 and its predecessor, 980, can be calculated with the identity n2 − (n − 1)2 = 2n − 1:

2 x 981 – 1 = 1961 = 9812 – 9802 = 962361 – 960400 = 1961

981 is odd, and the square numbers of odd numbers are also odd: (2n + 1)2 = 4 × (n2 + n) + 1.

Squares of odd numbers like 981 are of the form 8n + 1, because (2n + 1)2 = 4n × (n + 1) + 1;
n × (n + 1) is an even number.
