RE: Square root on basic cheap calcs
If you look at the first digital computer, the Z3, it had the four operation and square root with float point numbers. Completely with relays.
This is not complicate, if you know, that the square root can solved with a modified division operation. Perhaps this simple calculators include square root because of this easy calculation. All other function like sin, log etc. need much more code.
