996 x 996 = 992016

The inverse operation of squaring nine hundred and ninety-six is extracting the square root of 996, explained here. In the next section we elaborate on what is 996 squared, and there you can also find our calculator.

## What is 996 Squared

A square is a flat shape with four equal sides; every angle is 90°. Hence, a square with side length 996 has an area of 992016.

996 squared equals the sum of the first 996 odd numbers:

$\sum_{i=1}^{996} (2i-1)$ = 992016

In addition, the number can be calculated from 995 squared using the following identity:

n2 = (n − 1)2 + (n − 1) + n = (n − 1)2 + (2n − 1)
9962 = 9952 + 995 + 996 = 9952 + 1991 = 992016

It can be also be computed from 995 squared with this identity:

n2 = 2 x (n − 1)2 − (n − 2)2 + 2
9962 = 2 x 9952 – 9942 + 2 = 2 x 990025 – 988036 + 2 = 992016

The difference between the perfect square of 996 and its predecessor, 995, can be calculated with the identity n2 − (n − 1)2 = 2n − 1:

2 x 996 – 1 = 1991 = 9962 – 9952 = 992016 – 990025 = 1991

996 is even, and the square numbers of even numbers are also even: (2n)2 = 4n2.

Squares of even numbers like 996 are divisible by 4 for $\frac{(2n)^{2}}{4}$ = n2.
