Square roots

Following unprecedented demand, I have written up a partial method and some worked examples of how to extract square roots exactly, without resorting to numerical analysis approximations.
The method I have described will calculate exact square roots where they exist and allow an arbitrary number of decimal places if you have the patience or the ability to write a suitable program for it.
Feedback positively encouraged:
