Math.Sqrt Method

Returns the square root of a specified number.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public static double Sqrt(
	double d
)

Parameters

d
Type: System.Double

A number.

Return Value

Type: System.Double

Value of d

Returns

Zero, or positive

The positive square root of d.

Negative

NaN

If d is equal to NaN or PositiveInfinity, that value is returned.

The following example uses Sqrt to assist in the computation of the inner angles of a given trapezoid.
