# Square root of a number using log

• Difficulty Level : Easy
• Last Updated : 26 Apr, 2021

For a given number find the square root using log function. Number may be int, float or double.

Examples:

```Input  : n = 9
Output : 3

Input  : n = 2.93
Output : 1.711724```

We can find square root of a number using sqrt() method.

## C++

 `// C++ program to demonstrate finding``// square root of a number using sqrt()``#include` `int` `main(``void``)``{``    ``double` `n = 12;``    ``printf``(``"%lf "``, ``sqrt``(n));``    ``return` `0;``}`

## Java

 `// Java program to demonstrate finding``// square root of a number using sqrt()` `import` `java.io.*;` `class` `GFG {``    ``public` `static` `void` `main (String[] args) {``    ``double` `n = ``12``;``    ``System.out.println(Math.sqrt(n));`  `// This code is contributed by akt_mit``    ``}``}`

## Python3

 `# Python3 program to demonstrate finding``# square root of a number using sqrt()``import` `math` `if` `__name__``=``=``'__main__'``:``    ``n ``=` `12``    ``print``(math.sqrt(n))` `# This code is contributed by``# Sanjit_Prasad`

## C#

 `// C# program to demonstrate finding``// square root of a number using sqrt()``using` `System;` `class` `GFG``{``public` `static` `void` `Main()``{``    ``double` `n = 12;``    ``Console.Write(Math.Sqrt(n));``}``}` `// This code is contributed``// by Akanksha Rai`

Output :

`3.464102 `

We can also find square root using log2() library function:

## C++

 `// C++ program to demonstrate finding``// square root of a number using log2()``#include` `double` `squareRoot(``double` `n)``{``    ``return` `pow``(2, 0.5*log2(n));``}` `int` `main(``void``)``{``    ``double` `n = 12;``    ``printf``(``"%lf "``, squareRoot(n));``    ``return` `0;``}`

## Java

 `// Java program to demonstrate finding``// square root of a number using log2()``import` `java.io.*;` `class` `GFG``{``static` `double` `squareRoot(``double` `n)``{``    ``return` `Math.pow(``2``, ``0.5` `* (Math.log(n) /``                              ``Math.log(``2``)));``}` `// Driver Code``public` `static` `void` `main (String[] args)``{``    ``double` `n = ``12``;``    ``System.out.println(squareRoot(n));``}``}` `// This code is contributed by akt_mit`

## Python

 `# Python program to demonstrate finding``# square root of a number using sqrt()``import` `math` `# function to return squareroot``def` `squareRoot(n):` `    ``return` `pow``(``2``, ``0.5` `*` `math.log2(n))` `# Driver program` `n ``=` `12``print``(squareRoot(n))` `# This code is contributed by``# Sanjit_Prasad`

## C#

 `// C# program to demonstrate finding``// square root of a number using log2()``using` `System;` `public` `class` `GFG{``    ` `static` `double` `squareRoot(``double` `n)``{``     ``return` `Math.Pow(2, 0.5 * (Math.Log(n) /Math.Log(2)));``}` `    ` `    ``static` `public` `void` `Main (){``            ``double` `n = 12;``            ``Console.WriteLine(squareRoot(n));``    ``}``//This code is contributed by akt_mit   ``}`

How does above program work?

``` let d be our answer for input number n
then n(1/2) = d
apply log2 on both sides
log2(n(1/2)) = log2(d)
log2(d) = 1/2 * log2(n)
d = 2(1/2 * log2(n))
d = pow(2, 0.5*log2(n))  ```
