our maths teacher asked us that we all use the long division method to find square roots or cube roots. The question is,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); why do we do it that way, i.e. taking one or two nos.from the starting, doubling the divisor and all the steps(i guess everyone knows that). can anyone please help me and tell me themain objective or the actual reasons involvedin each step?
