Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

We are asking what number, times itself, is equal to 30. Five times itself is 25. Six times itself is 36. The answer is somewhere between 5 and 6. Let's split the difference and try 5.5. 5.5 times 5.5 is 30.25. This is above 30, so let's try a smaller number, 5.4. 5.4 times 5.4 is 29.16. This is lower than 30, so we need a higher number. How about 5.45? I get 29.7025. We need a number a little higher. How about 5.47? I get 29.9209. Still need a little higher. How about 5.48? 30.0304. So it is somewhere between 5.47 and 5.48.

On a calculator, you can use the square root function. Sometimes you have to enter the number before you hit the square root function and sometimes you need to enter the number after hitting the square root function. Another way of doing it is to use the exponent function, usually with a y to the x key or a ^ key. Enter 30, hit the exponent key, and then enter 1 divided by 2 in brackets.

I get approximately 5.477225575051661134569697828008.

Good luck.

To calculate the square root of 9, press

2nd [square-root] 9 ) =

The square-root is the shifted function of the x-squared key, just to the left of the 7 key. The close-parenthesis is needed to balance the open-parenthesis automatically inserted by the square-root function.

If you can't find the square root sign you could enter it like:

4^(1/2)=2 and 16^(1/2)=4 just what #your look for the square root of just take to the ^(1/2)

I'd like to give the key reference for the square root sign but, I loan my calculator to a student
