Funny Thought of the Day! – HSN.RN.B.3

I just had an amusing thought. What if you had a square with an area of 5? You know the exact area of the square but you would never know the exact side length. Why you ask?

It’s simple, to find the side length, take the square root of 5 because the area of a square is a side squared. The square root of 5 is an irrational number, meaning it has a decimal that is non-terminating and non-repeating. That means it goes on forever and you don’t know what it is, so how could you know the exact length?
