Square Root calculation



#3

As an entry level engineer in 1963 and for a few years thereafter, I remember using Friden or Mnoroe/Marchant calculating machines to also find the square root. 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?
