Here's an example  it's called the "divide and average"  method

 

Sqrt   13       (to three decimal places)  = 3.605

 

First since  the sqrt  9   is 3    and the square root of 16 is 4......let's guess that the sqrt 13  might be something like 3.5 ( actually......we can make any "educated guess"....it will still work out

 

1)  Divide 13  by  3.5   =  3.174

2)  Take the average  of  3.5  and 3174 = 3.337

3) Divide 13 by 3.337  = 3.895

4) Take the average of  3.337 and 3.895 = 3.632

5) Divide 13  by 3.632  = 3.579

6) Average 3.632 and 3.579  = 3.605

 

And our job is complete  !!!!........hope that might help you  !!!
