Evaluate 15 squared show work

Answer:

225

Step-by-step explanation:

15x15=225

There is a cool trick you can do. Lets take 28 and square it.

First you round the number up. 28 rounded is 30. You rounded up by 2 (30-28=2) so you minus 2 from 28.

You are left with these two numbers, 26 and 30. Add a zero to the 26.

You now have 260 and 3 (you remove 0 on the 30 since you added it to the 26)

Then you multiply by 3.

260x3=780

Then you add the square of the number you rounded up too, which is 2.

You are left with this equation.

(2^2)+780= 784

28x28=784.

This works for numbers below 100 and integers
