C# | Math.Sqrt() Method

In C#, Math.Sqrt() is a Math class method which is used to calulate the square root of the specified number.
Sqrt is a slower computation. It can be cached for a performance boost.
Syntax:

public static double Sqrt(double d)

Parameter:

d: Number whose square root is to be calculated and type of this parameter is System.Double.



Return Type: This method returns the square root of d. If d is equal to NaN, NegativeInfinity, or PositiveInfinity, that value is returned. The return type of this method is System.Double.

Examples:

Input  : Math.Sqrt(81) 
Output : 9

Input  : Math.Sqrt(-81) 
Output : NaN

Input  : Math.Sqrt(0.09) 
Output : 0.3

Input  : Math.Sqrt(0)
Output : 0

Input  : Math.Sqrt(-0)
Output : 0

Below C# programs illustrate the working of Math.Sqrt():

  • Program 1: When the argument is positive double value then this method returns the square root of a given value.

        // Main Method
        public static void Main()

            double x = 81;
      
            // Input positive value, Output square root of x
            Console.Write(Math.Sqrt(x));
        }
    }

    Output:

    9
    
  • Program 2: When the argument is Negative, this method will return NaN.

            Console.Write(Math.Sqrt(x));
        }
    }

    Output:

    NaN
    
  • Program 3: When the argument is double value with decimal places, then this method will return the square root of a given value.

    0
    

Note: If the value is too large then its gives the compile time error as error CS1021: Integral constant is too large.
