vX: The number whose square is returned; the number is multiplied by itself. Function returns Null if vX is Null or cannot be fixed up to a real or complex number (as defined by the ComplexStringToReals function). Complex numbers are represented within strings as "R|I" where R is the real part and I is the imaginary part.
Note: Square(X) is equivalent to and faster than Mult(X, X).
Note: Square(X) is equivalent to and more accurate than Power(X, 2).
