## Square root in Python Program

In this program, we will be designing a code to find the square root of a number given by the user in Python.

The function `sqrt` is generated in order to find the square root of a number passing the number `n` as an argument in the function.

**Note: The exponent operator `**` is used to calculate the power of a number. It is written as `a ** b`, where `a` is the base and `b` is the exponent.

Algorithm:

1. Define a function `sqrt` that takes in a single argument `n`.
2. Inside the function, calculate the square root of `n` using the equation `n ** 0.5` and assign the result to the variable `x`.
3. Prompt the user to enter a number and store the input in the variable `n`.
4. Call the `sqrt` function with the argument `n` to calculate the square root of the user-specified number.
5. Print the result stored in the variable `x`.
6. Exit the program.

Code:

``````def sqrt(n):
x = n ** 0.5
print(x)

n = int(input("Enter the number whose square root you need to find: "))
sqrt(n)
``````

Output:

``````Enter the number whose square root you need to find: 25
