Geometry: Using intersecting circles to obtain square rootsHere's a simple geometric method for obtaining a square root using circles. #2 20110408 07:07:57

Re: Geometry: Using intersecting circles to obtain square rootsBeautiful graphical calculator of circles. I tried many numbers from 1 to 1000, igloo myrtilles fourmis #4 20110428 13:47:47
Re: Geometry: Using intersecting circles to obtain square roots
A perhaps more "proper" version would use a circle in the middle for the odd numbers as well, but I didn't like having half circles on the sides. #5 20130609 04:39:51

Re: Geometry: Using intersecting circles to obtain square rootscirclemaker, that's a beautiful tool. Can you give us a single line of code that turns n into the square root? Can you also show how this can be done on a simple calculator or on paper? #7 20130611 17:38:55
Re: Geometry: Using intersecting circles to obtain square rootsYou can put this up in the browser url bar: javascript:alert(Math.cos(Math.asin((((n+1)/2)1)/((n+1)/2)))*((n+1)/2));
