https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-listHere's what your code did:

import math # make the math module accessible

a = math.sqrt(1000) # set `a` to the square root of 1000 (?31.62...)

a.sqrt # get a reference to the sqrt method/attribute of a float, which

does not exist; moreover you are not calling the method/discarding the

value so it would be useless anyways
