How To Find Square Root in C Program

Ask a question
One of various computer programming languages, C is the most basic and widely used language, likely because it gives maximum efficiency and control to programmers. The C language can be used for mathematical operations, ranging from additions and subtractions to square roots and cube roots, along with other polynomial powers that can be created through C programming.

To find the square root of a number, you can customize the C script to code the logic by using the sqrt function. This tutorial will show you how.

Finding a Square Root in C Program

Here is sample program:


#include <math.h>    
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
double x = 4.0, result;

result = sqrt(x);
printf("The square root of %lf is %lfn", x, result);
return 0;
}
