eg:√4=2  (because,2 can be multiplied by itself to get 4)
√9=3  (because 3*3=9)

Square is that multiplication of number by itself. square root is opposite of square.
symbole of square is √ it is called radical
ex. take square of 4 is 16 [4*4=16]
square root of 4 is 2 [√4 = 2]
in your ex. 3 square root of 3 is √3
[bcoz no multiplication of number by itself give 3]
