The inverse operation of squaring nine hundred and ninety-eight is extracting the square root of 998, explained here. In the next section we elaborate on *what is 998 squared*, and there you can also find our calculator.

## What is 998 Squared

A square is a flat shape with four equal sides; every angle is 90°. Hence, a square with side length 998 has an area of 996004.

998 squared equals the sum of the first 998 odd numbers:

$\sum_{i=1}^{998} (2i-1)$ = 996004

In addition, the number can be calculated from 997 squared using the following identity:

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

998^{2} = 997^{2} + 997 + 998 = 997^{2} + 1995 = 996004

It can be also be computed from 997 squared with this identity:

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

998^{2} = 2 x 997^{2} – 996^{2} + 2 = 2 x 994009 – 992016 + 2 = 996004

The difference between the perfect square of 998 and its predecessor, 997, can be calculated with the identity n^{2} − (n − 1)^{2} = 2n − 1:

2 x 998 – 1 = 1995 = 998^{2} – 997^{2} = 996004 – 994009 = 1995

998 is even, and the square numbers of even numbers are also even: (2n)^{2} = 4n^{2}.

Squares of even numbers like 998 are divisible by 4 for $\frac{(2n)^{2}}{4}$ = n^{2}.
