Take the square of A, B, and C then take the 4th power of D and E. The closest is A or .0025.

Of the following, which is the best approximation to sq root 0.0026 ?
(A) 0.05
(B) 0.06
(C) 0.16
(D) 0.5
(E) 0.6


0.0026 = 26/10,000

We want to estimate the square root of this, so we can round off the numerator to the closest perfect square, which is 25. Thus

\sqrt{ \frac{26}{10,000} } \approx \sqrt{ \frac{25}{10,000} } = \frac{ \sqrt{25} }{ \sqrt{10,000} } = \frac{5}{100} = 0.05

= sqrt(26*10^-4)

= (10^-2)*sqrt(26)

ie approximately 0.05

Answer is A.
