Re: Square Roots
Interesting method. Personally, I memerize sqrt(2) for isoceles triangles, sqrt (3) for 306090 triangles, and sqrt(5) for the golden ratio.
For any square roots higher, I would just use a calculator. (Mainly square roots above 10 are only presented in calculator rounds of MathCounts)
Anyways, this is an extremely efficient method for more than 2 digit numbers. Thanks for sharing.
