Patterns in Tables Charts (continued) A square number is formed when a number is multiplied by itself; for example, 5 x 5 = 25. Twentyfive is a square number. A raised 2 is used to show when a number is to be squared; e.g. 52 = 5 x 5 or 25.

Twentyfive is called a square number because if you tried to draw a rectangle with the dimensions 5 x 5 it would form a square.
