Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Outkast3r09 , yes, to get a decimal approximation, a calculator is the best way. There are old iterative methods for finding square roots by hand, but why bother? ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1;) I happen to be one of those teachers who doesn't allow calculators, that's why I said the expression is already in simplest form.
