# SQRT

The SQRT() function returns the square root of a given positive number.

The syntax for the SQRT() function in Oxla is:

The SQRT() function requires one argument:

- x: A positive number or an expression that evaluates to a positive number.

The following example demonstrates how the SQRT() function can be used to find the square root of a positive integer:

You will get the following result:

Letβs look at an example of using the SQRT() function to find the square root of the result of an expression.

The result of the above statement is the square root of 64:

In addition to integers, Oxla also supports calculating square roots with floating-point numbers as the outcome. For further details, please refer to the statement below:

The output of the statement above is 8.3666, which is the square root of 70 with double precision, as demonstrated below:

The following example demonstrates how attempting to use the SQRT() function with a negative value will return an error:

As the SQRT() function only accepts positive numbers, you will get a * NaN (Not a Number)* result for the square root of -25, as shown below:

Here's an example using the SQRT operator (|/(x)) to calculate the square root of a given number:

In this example, we calculate the square root of 169 using the SQRT operator. The result of this query will be:
