This poem is summarised as follows
c= (a - a/8) + (b/2) c= (a - a/8) + (b/2) = 4-(4/8) + (3/2) = 5 It seems to be perfect. No square root required. Though it seems to be perfect it is not accurate. See more examples below. a = 24 b = 7 c= (a - a/8) + (b/2) = 24-(24/8) + (7/2) = 24.5 c= 24.5 ≠ 25 a = 15 b = 8 c= (a - a/8) + (b/2) = 15-(15/8) + (8/2) = 17.125 c= 17.125 ≠ 17
