Your calculator does not include a square root function, but you need to find the square root of integer (whole) numbers. You are guaranteed that the square root is an integer. SOLUTION:
Extend the above procedure to allow for the case when the square root is not an integer. In this case, find the pair of numbers that bracket (one smaller than, one larger than) the actual square root. Below is a demonstration of what is needed - you create the algorithm. Note: This produces, by enumeration, an approximate solution - a methodology that we will discuss later!
