Subject: Re: Square Roots



You can find an illustration of several "old" hand methods to find
square roots, as well as the geometry of why they work (makes it
easier to remember how to do) as well as some notes on cube roots and
some old textbook images at 

http://www.pballew.net/etyindex.html

Under the alphabetical index select "S" and look for Square root
methods of ancients... 
Hope that is helpful.

Pat
