remind me agen, how can i extract sums from libs?
Scratch that: sqrt=pow(number,0.5)
i need to write a power function now
>>i need to write a power function now
Then search the boards, there's sample code out there. Or simply write your own.
When all else fails, read the instructions.
If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
Does anyone here actually know the precise formula to find the square root of a number? I'm not neccessarily looking to find out how to do it (I could easily find the answer myself), but to see if someone knows the formula for it. My math teahcer said she used to know, but she hasn't used it in so long that she forgot what it is.
Davros, I don't particularly care to know the formula myself, yet to see if someone had the formula memorized themself.
you find the square root of a number by mulptliging a number by it self, the perfect quares in math are as fallowsOriginally posted by krappykoder

0=0
1=1
2=4
3=9
4=16
5=25
6=36
7=49
8=64
9=81
10=100

No, that's the square of the number.Originally posted by LouDu

Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah
You. Fetch me my copy of the Wall Street Journal. You two, fight to the death - Stewie

I am against the teaching of evolution in schools. I am also against widespread
literacy and the refrigeration of food.

Do I detect a bit of sarcasm?

Wowzers! I gotta tell my math teachers about this! I gotta find all of them since my 4th grade class! I must tell them that they taught me the square root wrongly! Haha! I can't wait to see the looks on their faces!you find the square root of a number by mulptliging a number by it self, the perfect quares in math are as fallows
This is taught to first year plumber and pipefitter appretices which is also how I was taught in school. It is rather convoluted though:

BLASPHEMY! Begone from my C board, you foul lover of objects, before the gods of C cast you into the void as punishment for your weakness! There is no penance for saying such things in my presence. You are henceforth excommunicated. Never return to this house, filthy heretic!
I dont know what convoluded means but it sure it complicated
