You are on page 1of 4

Suppose you need to find the square root of 66564. Set up a "division" with the number under the radical.

Mark off pairs of digits, starting from the decimal point and working left. (Here the decimal point is a period

(.) and commas (,) mark pairs of digits.)

___________

\/ 6,65,64.

Look at the leftmost digit(s) (6 in this case). What is the largest number whose square is less than or equal to

it? It is 2, whose square is 4. Write 2 above, write the square below and subtract.

__2________

\/ 6,65,64.

-4

----

2

Now bring down the next two digits (65). The next "divisor" is double the number on top (2x2=4) and some

other digit in the units position (4_).

__2________

\/ 6,65,64.

-4

-----

4_ ) 265

What is the largest number that we can put in the units and multiply times the divisor and still be less than or

equal to what we have? (Algebraically, what is d such that d × 4d ≤ 265?) It looks like 6 might work (since 6

* 40 = 240), but 6 is too big, since 6 * 46 = 276.

__2__6_____

\/ 6,65,64.

276 TOO BIG

So try 5 instead.

__2__5_____

\/ 6,65,64.

-----

45 ) 265

-225

-------

40

Repeat: bring down the next two digits, and double the number on top (2x25=50) to make a "divisor", with

another unit.

__2__5_____

\/ 6,65,64.

0

So the square root of 66564 is 258. You can continue for as many decimal places as you need: just bring

down more pairs of zeros.

Here is an example spanning the decimal point. When a number does not have a rational square root, you

can continue calculating (significant) digits as long as you wish.

cube root

Suppose you need to find the cube root of 55,742,968. Set up a "division" with the number under the radical.

Mark off triples of digits, starting from the decimal point and working left. (The decimal point is a period (.),

and commas (,) mark triples of digits.)

____________

\/ 55,742,968.

Look at the leftmost digit(s) (55 in this case). What is the largest number whose cube is less than or equal to

it? It is 3, whose cube is 27. Write 3 above, write the cube below and subtract.

__3_________

\/ 55,742,968.

28742

Coming up with the next "divisor" is more involved than for square roots. First bring down 3 times the

square of the number on top (3 × 3²=27) leaving room for two more digits (27_ _).

__3_________

\/ 55,742,968.

-27

----

27_ _) 28742

What is the largest number that we can put in the next position and multiply times the divisor and still be

less than or equal to what we have? (Algebraically, what is d such that d × 2700 ≤ 28742?) 10 might work

(since 10 × 2700 = 27000), but we can only use a single digit, so we'll try 9.

__3___9_____

\/ 55,742,968.

-27

----

27_ _) 28742

The second step in making the divisor is adding 3 times the previous number on top (3) times the last digit

(9) times 10 (3 × 3 × 9 = 81 × 10 = 810) and the square of the last digit (9² = 81).

3591) 28742

Multiply by the last digit (9 × 3591 = 32319) and subtract. But that is too big! So we'll try 8 as the next digit

instead.

27_ _) 28742

We repeat the second step of adding 3 times the previous number on top (3) times the last digit (8) times 10

(3 × 3 × 8 = 72 × 10 = 720) and the square of the last digit (8² = 64).

We are ready to start over on the next digit. Bring down the next three digits. The divisor starts as 3 times

the square of the number on top (3 × 38²=4332) leaving room for two more digits (4332_ _).

Add 3 times the previous number on top (38) times the last digit (2) times 10 (3 × 38 × 2 = 228 × 10 = 2280)

and the square of the last digit (2² = 4).

So the cube root of 55742968 is 382. You can continue to get as many decimal places as you need: just bring

down more triples of zeros.
