Hi, how are you going mate?

Do you know how to solve this equation by estimation method ?

for square root

estimation method say 10 X 10 = 100 ….20 x 20 = 400 …. 30 X 30 = 900

625 is between root 20 and 30 …625 is ended by 5 only the multification of 5

60 x 60 = 3600

70 x 70 = 4900

4489 is between 60 and 70 4489 is ended by 9, therefore it could be 3 or 7

63 X 63 = 3969

and 67 x 67 = 4489

solution for cubic root is similar

10 x 10 x 10 = 1 000

20 x 20 x 20 = 8 000

so 5832 is between cubic root of 10 and 20

now look at the last number of 5832 is ended by 2 is only multification of 8

how 8 x 8 x 8 = 2 … 8 x 8 = 64 take 4

4 x 8 = 32 so it is 2

our estimation is 18

30 x 30 x 30 = 27 000

40 x 40 x 40 = 64 000

therefore 42875 is between cubic root 30 and 40

so our estimation is 35

have a good day
