The Abstruse And Calculations Of Perfect Patricia Plenitude

Reciprocal Roger had nothing going on.
He hurled abstruse at Patricia
until she was to the power of minus one.
Roger became the man Patricia loved to hate,
but over time she recovered
back to her positive twenty eight.

Along came Chris to two decimal places
he was a radical sign.
He squarely rooted Patricia
until she was five point two nine.
She lost her integrity, an integer no more.
She decided to try a cubic root
which gives a really radical score.

Dick was only of a medium size,
but accurate to five sig figs,
it opened Patricia's eyes.
So now that Patricia has become
an irrational surd
Do you know what number occurred?

To nought point nought nought nought one,
to Patricia's horror
she found he was positively a relative error,
but that's another riddle.
