Square Root Formula Visualizer: Walk like the Babylonians
« on: November 17, 2018, 11:04 AM »

The Babylonian method of finding square root is:
  • guess a random number
  • divide the number whose square root you want to find by it
  • average the two and get your next guess
Rinse, repeat until your guesses are too close to each other.

This program allows you to see each step of this procedure.
