This was done by a succesive substraction using alternate odd numbers and every other row. Does anyone know if there is a record or tip book of this square root calculation? ▼ Randy Smith Member Posts: 109 Threads: 6 Joined: Jan 1970 02-10-2002, 06:40 AM Try this page from here: http://www.hpmuseum.org/root.htm
