# Ruby CMath sqrt() Method with example

sqrt method is a Math class method in Ruby which is used to calculate the square root of the given value.

Syntax: Math.sqrt(z)

Parameter: Here, z is the value whose square root is to be calculated.

Returns: This method returns the square root of the given number.

Below programs illustrate the use of above-discussed method:

Example 1:

 # Ruby code for sqrt() method require 'cmath'    # Initialize values  a = 9 b = 78.15    # Printing result   puts "Square root value of a : #{CMath.sqrt(a)}\n\n"   puts "Square root value of b : #{CMath.sqrt(b)}\n\n"

Output:

Square root value of a : 3.0

Square root value of b : 8.84024886527523

Example 2:

 # Ruby code for sqrt() method require 'cmath'    # Initializing value  a = 7841 b = 1234    # Printing result   puts "Sqrt root value of a : #{CMath.sqrt(a)}\n\n"   puts "Sqrt root value of b : #{CMath.sqrt(b)}\n\n"

Output:

Sqrt root value of a : 88.54942122905152

Sqrt root value of b : 35.12833614050059
