Subject: Re: square root question



For the positive integers, the perfect squares(whole numbers whose
square root yields a postive integer form a pattern, namely:

1^2 = 1, 2^2= 4, 3^2=9..., N^2 = (N-1)^2 + 2N-1.

All non perfect square whole number can indeed be approximated between
two successive perfect squares. Of course, you could try prime
factorization of numbers that have two or more prime factor pairs.
