Abstract
The idea of equivalent geometric forms is used in this study to devise simple formulas to estimate the square root and the cube root of an arbitrary positive number. The resulting formulas are easy to use and they don’t take much time to calculate. They give excellent estimates which compare very favourably with those given by a pocket calculator
