73 is some number between 8^2 and 9^2. Since it is closer to 64, lets take its square root as 8.
239 is close to 225 which has a square root of 15. Hence lets take it as 15.

15x8 = 120

Square root of 7.2 is some number between 2 and 3 since 2^2 is 4 and 3^2 is 9. Assume it to be 2.
Square root of 15.7 is some number slightly less than 4, since 4^2 = 16. Hence take it to be 4.

4+2 = 6

Therefore 120/6 = 20
