To find the square root of 5, group the digits into two-digit pairs starting from the unit place. For numbers before a decimal point, you will move towards the left side. You will move towards the right for numbers after a decimal place. For each pair of digits, note down the largest square number. The quotient is the second pair of numbers. The divisor is the lower of these two numbers.
