    there isn't one for this problem, the reason is -85 and take the square root of that it would I for the closest

    my teacher gave me a worksheet im trying to do it at home the instructions say find the best integer estimate for each square root then check your estimate with a calcualator and the number is -85

    well than let us break this down, sqrt of 81 is 9 and sqrt of 5 is 2.2360 with a - minus

    since its an estimate thats an integer isnt 9 times 9 81 so wouldnt that be the closest estimate

    by using +9 times -9 = -81 becauase - times + = -

    so what should i wright down for the best integer thats an estimate to it -9?

    yes that is what I would put, only because it started with -85 so the end result has to be the same which would be -9
