In the very early days of calculators, there were 4-function models and significantly more expensive 5-function models - the fifth function was square root.

A friend of mine saved money buying the 4-function model, hoping that it really could do square root as well, even if the button for it was missing; there was only a flat grey square in its position. Hopefully, it would be possible to solder in a small pushbutton.

So my friend found a scalpel for cutting the flat grey square open. And out popped a button with a square root symbol on top. Not only could the calculator do square root, it even had the button for it hidden under the blind cover!
