Question about Texas Instruments TI-86 Calculator
The problem is ^4 square root of 21.2846
The square root has a dedicated key sequence [2nd][V square root symbol]
Square root of 21.2846 is entered [2nd][V square root] 21.2846 [ENTER] .
The result is`4.614.
I suspect you want to calculate the 4th root of 21.2846. If it is the case you enter that as
21.2846 [^](1/4) =2.148
Square root can be also entered as [^](1/2)
Cube root is entered as [^] (1/3)
nth root is entered as [^](1/n)
Hope it helps.

Testimonial: "thanks sorry for the REALLY late reply!"
You can calculate =4^1.2 in Excel and get
And also in Excel you can determine what the square root of 2 is (2.506628274631) and then in Excel = 5 ^ 2.506628274631 = 56.5012395907155.
I know this is late but maybe it will help later. Assuming I am doing it right. Thanks!

If you would like to a root other than a square root, first enter the root value (3, 4, 5, etc.) then press MATH. Then Press 5 and enter the value you want to take that root of. Press ENTER.

SOURCE: Square root on FX-83ES
make sure you havnt droppend your calculator as this can damage the chip, if so , re solder broken parts and it sshould work, this happened on mine and after i soldered it it is fixed.
online companies can fix it if you send it away

SOURCE: TI-15 square root Function
You should enter it as follows [SQRT]36 ) [ENTER/=].
If you define some function f of a variable x you write that f(x), where the parentheses enclose the so-called argument (objet on wich the function acts). It seems that on this calculator the opening parenthesis is implicit: the calculator supplies it when you press [SQRT] but does not display it (a design flaw?). However the closing parenthesis must be entered by you to signifie to the function [SQRT] that you have finished entering the argument. Weird but one can live with it.
Hope it helps.

if it is a perfct square root then u will get a integer part.....if its not a perfect square root than obviously u will get decimal part........ u just check ur calculater in which mode it is......exit the radian and do it

Here is a picture of the powers and root functions of your calculator.
1.To calculate the cubic root of a number you use the key combination shown on line 5
Ex: Cubic root of 27
27 [2nd] [3 root x] [EXE]; Should get 3
2. You can use the general root key on line 7 [2nd][x Root y]
Ex: Cubic root of 125
125 [2nd][ x Root y] 3 [EXE] Should get 5
(-125) [2nd][x Root y] 3 [EXE]; Should get -5
3. You can also yse the general power key on line 6: [Y to x], but the degree of the root is entered as a fraction 1/3
Ex: cubic root of -125.
(-125) [Y to x]( 1/3) [EXE]; You should get -5
4. The [Y to x[ key is the one you use to obtain all other roots fourth, fift, tenth, n-th.
Ex: Fourth root of 256
256 [Y to x] (1/4) [EXE]: You should get 4
5. To extract the squqre root of a number you can use the key on the 3rd line [root x] or the general power key on line 6 with exponent 1/2
Exemple square root of 256
256 [Root x] [EXE] should give you 16
256 [Y to x] (1/2) [EXE] should give you 16 also
Hope that helps.
