The sqrt function is not doing what I want. This is what I want:

round sqrt(2)

A lot of Haskell folks like to avoid parentheses as much as possible, and there's a really
convenient way to do this. There is a Prelude function
($) f x = f x
which is right-associative, so you can write
round $ sqrt x == round (sqrt x)
This becomes really convenient when multiple application is involved:
print $ round $ sqrt x == print (round (sqrt x))
