2.
All of the square numbers are simply numbers, squared (multiplied by
themselves), starting with 1 and increasing by 1 with each new square number.
The next five square numbers would simply be the next five numbers, squared.
We already have 6, 7, and 8, squared. The next step would be to multiply 9x9,
and 10x10. The next five numbers in the pattern would be the product of the
following numbers, squared: 6,7,8,9, and 10.
3.
72 is not a square number because it is not the product of any whole number,
squared. 64 and 81 are the closest square numbers to 72, so 72 would not be a
square number.
