Squaring numbers in the 20s
Square the last digit (keep the carry)   _ _ X
Multiply the last digit by 4, add the carry   _ X _
The first digit will be 4 plus the carry:   X _ _

Example:
If the number to be squared is 24:
Square the last digit (keep the carry):
4 × 4 = 16 (keep 1)     _ _ 6
Multiply the last digit by 4, add the carry:
4 × 4 = 16, 16 + 1 = 17    _ 7 _
The first digit will be 4 plus the carry:
4 (+ carry): 4 + 1 = 5    5 _ _
So 24 × 24 = 576.

See the pattern?
If the number to be squared is 26:
Square the last digit (keep the carry):
6 × 6 = 36 (keep 3)    _ _ 6
Multiply the last digit by 4, add the carry:
4 × 6 = 24, 24 + 3 = 27 (keep 2)   _ 7 _
The first digit will be 4 plus the carry:
4 (+ carry): 4 + 2 = 6  6 _ _.
So 26 × 26 = 676.
