I'll  do  the first one..you should be  able to do  the  rest..we  will   use  the "divide  and  average"  method

Let us suppose  that  we  think  3  is  the  sq rt   of 20

1.   Divide 20  by  3   =  6.66

2.   Average   3 + 6.66  =    (3 + 6.66)  / 2   =  4.83

3. Divide 20  by  4.83   =  4.14

4.  Average   4.83  and 4.14  = ( 4.83 + 4.14)  / 2   =  4.485

5. divide 20  by  4.485  = 4.459

6.  Avverage   4.485  and  4.459  =  4.472

7.  Divide 20 by  4.472  =  4.472

The last  two  results   agree  to two decimal places

So.....sqrt  20   ≈   4.47
