    Are you allowed to use the math library or do you need to make a function that does all the work? If making a function, here is one important concept: accuracy. Due to limits in binary to decimal conversion, there are errors of accuracy. You will need to use some mathematical method for finding the root that does guesses or works it out from one of the classical formulas for finding roots. It will rarely get the actual root, so you want it to give a result when it gets close.

    take a look at the 'raw_input' command (help(raw_input) inside IDLE. Also remember that a square root is equivalent to a number raised to the 0.5 exponent.
