Maths Tricks of Squaring Numbers In The Five Hundreds 

Squaring numbers in the five hundreds 
Choose a number in the 500s (start with low numbers at first; then graduate to larger ones). The first two digits of the square are 25: 2 5 _ _ _ _ The next two digits will be 10 times the last 2 digits: _ _ X X _ _ The last two places will be the square of the last two digits: _ _ _ _ X X Example: If the number to be squared is 508: The first two digits are 25: 2 5 _ _ _ _ The next two digits are 10 times the last 2 digits: 10 x 8 = 80: _ _ 8 0 _ _ Square the last digit: 8 x 8 = 64: _ _ _ 6 4 So 508 x 508 = 258,064.
For larger numbers reverse the steps:
Square the last two digits (keep the carry): _ _ _ _ X X 10 times the last two digits + carry: _ _ X X _ _ 25 + carry: X X _ _ _ _
See the pattern?
If the number to be squared is 525: Square the last two digits (keep the carry): 25 x 25 = 625 (keep 6): _ _ _ _ 2 5 10 times the last two digits + carry: 10 x 25 = 250; 250 + 6 = 256 (keep 2): _ _ 5 6 _ _ 25 + carry: 25 + 2  27: 2 7 _ _ _ _ So 425 x 425 = 275,625.

Planet Dictionary 

A planet (from the Greek planete means "wanderer" or
more forcefully "vagrant, tramp") is an object in orbit around a star
that is not a star in its own right. Much like "continent," "planet"
is a word without a precise definition, with history and culture playing
as much of a role as geology and astrophysics
