Estimate? :o Hmmm is there some specific method for estimating? I can't seem to remember...

175 is awful close to 169 which is a perfect square.

\[\Large\bf\sf \sqrt{175}\quad=\quad \sqrt{169+6}\]Not really sure what we would do from there...

Factoring 169 out of each,\[\Large\bf\sf \sqrt{169\left(1+\frac{6}{169}\right)}\]Taking the root of 169,\[\Large\bf\sf 13\sqrt{1+\frac{6}{169}}\]I dunno I'm just trying to think of an idea for estimating. This doesn't exactly get us to a decimal value.. hmm
