Hello everyone! I am going to teach you how to approximate NON-PERFECT square roots. Bear with me, I know this may sound boring but watch, I'll show you the significance of having this skill ! Today, I will show you how to apply this process to the square root of 5.
Using the example, the square root of 5, this is all you have to do~ 1. Find the two closest PERFECT square roots where in which the the answer to the square root of 5 would fall between. 2. You check which perfect square your answer will be and in this case, the answer will be between 2 and 3 but closer to two. 3. In this step, you'll take the the numbers between 2 and 3. I think the answer will be between 2 and 2.5, so I multiply each number with itself to see which number seems to be the closest to 5 4. According to my calculations, 2.2 is closer to 5, so that's my answer!
Now, you may be wondering, why do I need to be able to do this and I know your answer. You need to be able to pass math class and the only way to do that is to understand the material. Another use this process could be is for a person or group of people who are REALLY just getting on your nerves. So, just bore them to death by explaining how to approximate NON-Perfect square roots. You see! 90% of my audience right now is asleep! Short, simple, and effective!
