In this assignment you will write a function to calculate the square root of a number using the Babylonian method. You can search for that method, it will be easy to find.

What to Do

The function should receive a number and return floating point number. Obviously you should test your function, so create a main program that asks the user a value, calculates the square root and displays that.

What to Submit

As usual, create a blog post explaining what you did, where you found resources (books, videos, web pages, friends) to help you solve this. Remember to put the tag #WSQ13 on your post so our blog hub picks that up.

You should include your code as a link to GitHub.

And of course, leave any questions here as well as asking those questions on Twitter with the hashtag #TC1017 so we all see your question posted there.
