###### Question details

Program in C

**Guide:**

- Let number be the number to get the square root of
- Start with an estimate of 1.
- Recompute estimate = 0.5 * (estimate + number/estimate)
- Go back to 3

**Stop the loop when one of these occurs:**

1) (estimate*estimate) == number

2) The number of iterations gets to 100, the maximum

**Copy & Paste the following C
babyloniansquare.cfile:**

#include <stdlib.h> #include <stdio.h> const int TEXT_LEN = 64; void obtainFloat (float* fPtr ) { char text[TEXT_LEN];// YOUR CODE HERE} float squareRoot (float number, int maxIters, int* numItersPtr ) { float estimate = 1.0;// YOUR CODE HEREreturn(estimate); } int main () { float f; float ans; int numIters = 0; obtainFloat(&f); ans = squareRoot(f,100,&numIters); printf("squareRoot(%g) approx. equals %g (found in %d iterations).\n", f,ans,numIters ); return(EXIT_SUCCESS); }

**Finish obtainFloat():**

It should ask the user to enter a number from 0 to 65535, and
lets the user enter a number. If user enters a number outside that
range, it should ask again. The number is **not**
returned, but number is placed in the address to which fPtr
points.

**Finish squareRoot():**

After setting estimate to 1.0, it should loop and recompute estimate with the expression above. Every time it loops, it should increment the integer to which numItersPtrpoints. The loop should stop when the condition given above is met.
