SQRT()Return the square root of a positive number ------------------------------------------------------------------------------SyntaxSQRT(<nNumber>) --> nRootArguments<nNumber>is a positive number for which the square root is to be computed.ReturnsSQRT() returns a numeric value calculated to double precision. The number of decimal places displayed is determined solely by SET DECIMALS regardless of SET FIXED. A negative <nNumber> returns zero.DescriptionSQRT() is a numeric function used anywhere in a numeric calculation to compute a square root (e.g., in an expression that calculates standard deviation).Examples.These examples show various results of SQRT(): SET DECIMALS TO 5 // ? SQRT(2) // Result: 1.41421 ? SQRT(4) // Result: 2.00000 ? SQRT(4) ** 2 // Result: 4.00000 ? SQRT(2) ** 2 // Result: 2.00000FilesLibrary is CLIPPER.LIB.
