Now let us understand this method with the help of this example

Finding the square of 49

Step One: Start by adding 1 to the number.

It now becomes 50

This number now ends in zero and is easy to square this number

50^2 = (5*5*10*10) = 2500. This is the subtotal.

50 + 49 = 99

Subtract 99 from 2500 to get an answer of 2401.

To easily do such subtractions, subtract 100 (1 more than 99) from 2500 to get 2400 and then add 1 to get the answer as 2401

So square of 49 is 2401
