JavaScript Math.sqrt() Examples:

Let us calculate the square root of the given below values using JavaScript square root method.

let a = Math.sqrt(0);
// output: 0
let b = Math.sqrt(1);
// output: 1
let c = Math.sqrt(10);
// output: 3.1622776601683795
let d = Math.sqrt(-12);
// output: null
let e = Math.sqrt(9);
// output: 3
let f = Math.sqrt(-9);
// output: null
let g = Math.sqrt(13.5);
// output: 3.6742346141747673
let h = Math.sqrt('avengers');
// output: null
let i = Math.sqrt(null);
// output: 0
