Python Get Root Floor and Root Ceiling of a Number


Also because of my work in number theory, I often need to have the root floor and root ceing of a number.

This is my function for computing those two numbers from a target number.

Why not use math.floor() and math.ceil() ?

Try ...

sf = "For {} Root floor: {}, Ceiling: {}"
n = 91
print(sf.format(n, math.floor(n**0.5), math.ceil(n**0.5)))
n = 161
print(sf.format(n, math.floor(n**0.5), math.ceil(n**0.5)))
