I understand Ksp and formula set up and everything but I am having trouble with the math. Specially taking the sqrt of the numbers.

for example lets say Ksp = 3.3 x 10^-9= [x][x]

3.3 x 10^-9 =x^2

sqrt(3.3 x 10^-9) = x

My question is what is the fastest way to do the math here. From my understand the sqrt of 10^-9 = 10^(-9/2). What is the fastest way to take the square root of 3.3 without the guess and check and obviously without the calculator.
