Concerning the Arabic square root (which is an English sqrt symbol flipped horizontally)

The square root symbol originates from the word "Jidhr" (Root) and its symbol was a letter "Jeem" (start_of_word Jeem) over a number. So the English sqrt symbol is the Arabic sqrt symbol flipped horizontally ;)
