Heart wrote: The AE's knew the square root of 3, after a fashion. It is the length of the diagonal of a one by two rectangle.

By Pythagoras formula the diagonal of a 1 x 2 rectangle is L^2 + w^2 = d^2 therefore d = √5
For the diagonal to be √3 the rectangle would have to be 1 x 1.41421257 or 1 x √2.
