# The Square Root of Three

Three is not a perfect square. This means there is not a whole number multiplied by itself which equals 3. For example, the square root of 4 is 2 because 2 x 2 = 4

The square root of 3 is an irrational number. It is also known as Theodorus' constant

**Crazy fact :**

As of December 2013, its numerical value in decimal notation had been computed to at least ten billion digits.

The decimal value of the square root of 3 to 65 digits is as follows

1.732050807568877293527446341505872366942805253810380628055806

But you will be ok using 1.732 as a decimal value

The fraction **97/56 **can be used as an approximation of the square root of 3.

If you have an equilateral triangle the height equals the side divided by two and multiply this by square root 3.
