Surds

I have been thinking about some further connections between area and surds. I started this thinking a few years back after a discussion with https://twitter.com/Arithmaticks

I wanted to look at some shapes where the lengths were roots

I have also been trying to connect surds and prime factor decomposition. Especially since we’re looking for square number factors that are easily identified once the number is in prime factor form.
