The Square root of 1 is simply 1, as this answer is an oxymoron. As 1 is a real number and the square of any number is positive then we can safely assume that the square root of 1 is 1 or -1 itself. Representing this mathematically we get the following:
sqrt(1) = √1
= √1 = 1* 1
= 1
Therefore we have just proved that √1 = 1 as 1 is an exact multiple of 1. Thus, we have found the square root of 1. To find the square root of 1 to 50, you can take a calculator and individually put in the square roots of individual numbers until you have found the corresponding square roots for the individual numbers. For your convenience, you can find the square roots of the numbers from 1-50 located in the table for your quick reference while dealing with square roots.

Thus,you can find the individual square root of 1- 50 here, similarly you can keep finding the square root of numbers above 50 while using a calculator.
If somebody asks you what is the square root of 1, it is usually a trick question with 1 being the answer. Using the radical symbol usually implies that a root of a number is being found. We know that the nth root of a number, usually a complete number is defined as its unit roots. The under root 1 is either 1 or -1 since either one is a solution and it is usually written as √1.
