Generally, the float value will display like six digits after the decimal point so, the output of the above program will be 6.000000 because of √(36.0) =6.000000.

So whenever we have to calculate the sq.root of decimal digits there are always ans is value .000000.

If 36.0 is double then it should give 14 digits of precision then answer would be 6.00000000000000.
