RE: error in emulator
I understand now.

Instead of logically multiplying 3 x 3 and placing the result under the sqrt like a human brain would, it's calculating the result of each of the sqrt3 to 10 or so digits the rounding off, which is NOT a perfect result, then working the problem.

human:
3* sqrt3 *sqrt3 =
3 * sqrt9 =
3 * 3 =
9

Honest calculator:
3* sqrt3 *sqrt3 =
3 * 1.73205080757 * 1.73205080757 =
9.00000000001
(The bolded digits are rounded off)

Nasa calculated the square root of three out to 10 million digits, you can imagine it a mess of a number. Here's the first 500 digits:
