To calculate square root, you must do the
(1a) Starting at the right (units column) of
the quantity, separate the radicand
(portion under the square root sign)
into groups of two (2) digits.
IF YOU FEEL YOU HAVE
MASTERED THE SQUARE ROOT
(1b) (If the quantity contains a decimal)
From the right of the decimal point,
FRAMES 165-167; IF YOU
separate this portion of the radicand
into groups of two (2) digits each.
MASTERED SQUARE ROOT, DO
THE REMAINING FRAMES.
(1c) If the radicand does not contain an even
number of digits to divide into groups,
the remaining single number is treated
the same as a group.
Place a decimal point directly above the
decimal point in the radicand
