Abstract

In carrying out operations such as multiplication, division, squaring, cubing, finding square roots, finding cube roots, etc., with natural numbers, we may sometimes be interested in knowing the number of digits in the solution before obtaining the precise result. Often this can help in quickly spotting errors. This exercise aims to raise awareness in this area.
