How many terms of the sequence 

\(\sqrt{1},\sqrt{2},\sqrt{3},\sqrt{4},\ldots \)

are less than or equal to 20?

20^2 = 400         SO  there are 400 terms less than or equal to 20

To solve this, we first have to find the biggest term in the sequence, this is obviously the square root of 400. Since we know that the sequence is increasing by 1 for each step, we can conclude that there are exactly 400 terms.
