Use the sqrt() and log() functions from the math module, along with the built-in round() function to print the answers to the following questions to the screen.

  1. How long is one side of a square plant census quadrat that has an area of 10 m^2, rounded to two decimal places?
  2. The number of species in a region can be estimated based on the area of that region using the equation:

    number of species = 3.5 + 0.25 * log(area)

    The logarithms in this equation are natural logarithms. What is the estimated number of species for an area of 8 km^2 rounded to the nearest integer.
