What is the side of my square?Solution: You take 1. Two-thirds of 1 is 0;40. Half of this, 0; 20, you multiply by 0;20 and it, 0;6,40, you add to 0;35 and the result 0;41;40 has 0;50 as its square root. The 0;20 which you have multiplied by itself, you subtract from 0;50, and 0;30 is the side of the square.(Reference: Burton, David.
