Thanks Ashraf.
This line from the explanation of the problem also confuses me a lot..

"For the first N natural numbers, find the total of the digital sums of the first P digits for all the irrational square roots x such that x≤N "

Should we perform our calculations only for the natural number given as input, or should we take it as an indicator for 'first N natural numbers?' @shashank21j

The precision is given as P.

Only for a natural number N

@shashank21j We should calculate for all the number below N right?

yes

"Only for a natural number N" and "Yes. We should calculate for all the numbers below N"

Both these statements are confusing me..!

Thanks @shashank21j

@shashank21j Should we round the decimal to P digits scale with HALF_UP method or else take the first 100 digits without rounding?

first 100 digits without rounding.
