How to perform square root without using math module in Python?

Python has exponentiation operator (**) which can be used to calculate power of a number. x**y returns x raised to y i.e. y times multiplication of x. Since we need to calculate square root, y should be (1/2)

>>> 10**(1/2) 3.1622776601683795 >>> 25**(1/2) 5.0
