### Notes –

1. When selecting a Base number, prefer a number that is near the number to be squared as well as it should be easy to multiply with (prefer round numbers).
2. This method uses the concept (B + a)2 = [(B + a) + a] + a2, where ‘(B + a)’ is the number to be squared, ‘B’ is the Base number and ‘a’ is the difference.
3. Whenever the number is more than the Base number, the difference is written as positive (+ve).
4. Whenever the number is less than Base Number, the difference is written as negative (-ve).
5. This method is a corollary to the Multiplication method NrB2
