I've been playing around with a forumlaic representation of a known square roots estimation method and I came up with this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This estimation has several interesting properties to it which I've been looking into.

My main concern is the fact that I'm using SQRT(x) in the equation which is exactly what we're estimating. Obviously the exact value of SQRT(x) does not need to be known in order to perform this equation since the FLOOR and CEILING functions are being applied to it, but is this valid?
