Why does the square root function return an "Approximate" value when the root is a whole number like 9 √ yelds 3. , but the It uses an approximated method, so they should all be approximated. But sometimes the numerical method might converge exactly to the value after some iterations. Since the iterations use divisions, any number that has factors of 2 and 5 can be represented exactly. I didn't check in detail every iteration, but if the method has all exact divisions for a certain number it's final result will be exact.
