I often have to generate √5 digits so I created this simple online utility that does it for me. It lets you calculate however many square root of 5 digits you need, starting from any position. It works in the browser and is powered by alien technology from the future.

500 √5 Digits from 500th Position
This example starts calculating sqrt(5) digits from the 500th position and generates 500 following values (up to 999th position). We don't use the integer prefix "2" in the result and display the digits separated by the underscore symbol.

## How Does This Sqrt(5) Digits Generator Work?

This square root of 5 digits generator works entirely in your browser and is written in JavaScript. To avoid recomputing the decimal digits of √5, I precomputed the first million digits via Bakhshali algorithm and stored them in the `sqrt5-digits.js` library. This library contains a single variable `sqrt5Digits` that is a constant string of length one million. It loads just once before you use this utility. When you change `start` and `count` values in the options, this utility calls `sqrt5Digits.slice()` method, which extracts a substring from `start` to `start + count` positions. This substring contains exactly the requested sqrt(5) digits. If you also change the `separator` (specified in options) to a custom value, then it calls two additional methods – `split("")` method that returns an array of individual digits and then `join(separator)` method that combines all the elements of an array back into a string and places the `separator` value between them.

### Created by Browserling

This sqrt(5) digits generator was created by me and my team at Browserling. Behind the scenes, it's actually powered by our web developer tools that are used by millions of people every month. Browserling itself is an online cross-browser testing service powered by alien technology. Check it out!
