The square root of a positive whole number, N, is a number which, when multiplied by itself equals N. If N = 0 then the square root is also 0. If N is greater than 0 there will be two such numbers: one positive and the other its negative equivalent. If N is a perfect square the square roots will, themselves, be whole numbers. Otherwise, they will be irrational numbers. If N is a whole number less than 0 then there are no real square roots. Although there are square roots in the complex field, the fact that you ask this question is indicative that you are not yet ready to tackle complex numbers.
