## Syntax

`float SDL_sqrtf(float x);`

## Function Parameters

float |
**x** |
floating point value. Must be greater than or equal to 0. |

## Return Value

(float) Returns square root of `x`

.

Domain: `0 <= x <= INF`

Range: `0 <= y <= INF`

This function operates on single-precision floating point values, use SDL_sqrt for double-precision floats.

This function may use a different approximation across different versions, platforms and configurations. i.e, it can return a different value given the same input on different machines or operating systems, or if SDL is updated.
