14. If x^2=16 , then x=
O 4
O -4
O Both a & b
O None of these
Show Answer

Both a & b
Explanation:
This means what numbers squared becomes 16. Thus x \ can \ be \ 4 \ or \ -4 \ like \ (4)^2=16 \ and \ also \ (-4)^2=16.
Hence the value of x=\pm 4 .


15. If x=\sqrt{16} , then x=
O 4
O -4
O Both a & b
O None of these
Show Answer

4
Explanation:
Here x is the principal square root of 16, which has always a positive value such is x=4 .

O 4^{th}
O 5^{th}
O 2^{nd}
O Square
Show Answer

4^{th}
Explanation:
Here is the index of 4, thus it is called 4^{th} root.


17. \sqrt[3]{64}=
O 4
O -4
O Imaginary
O None of these
Show Answer

4
Explanation:
\sqrt[3]{64}=\sqrt[3]{4^3}
\sqrt[3]{64}=(4^3)^\frac{1}{3}
\sqrt[3]{64}=4


18. \sqrt[3]{-64}=
O 4
O -4
O Imaginary
O None of these
Show Answer

-4
Explanation:
If a is negative, then n must be odd for the nth root of a to be a real number.
\sqrt[3]{-64}=\sqrt[3]{(-4)^3}
\sqrt[3]{-64}=\left[(-4)^3\right]^\frac{1}{3}
\sqrt[3]{-64}=-4


19. \sqrt{-64}=
