4 squre root 81

Take the fourth root. The square root, denoted by a 2 on top of the "root thing" or more commonly without a number at all, is the second root.

Usually the easiest way to calculate the fourth root is to calculate the square root of the square root. So in this case the fourth root of 81 is the square root of the square root of 81. The square root of 81 is 9, the square root of 9 is 3.

I'm doing radicals I need to type an exponent into my calculator that goes before the square root not after. how do i do that (5) as an exponent square root of 32.....the answer is 2 but how do i type it...

Use the xth-root function to compute any root. It's the fifth entry on the MATH menu, which you can get by pressing the MATH key. The fourth entry on the same menu gives you the third root without needing the 3 to be specified.

For example, to compute the 5th root of 32, press 5 MATH 5 3 2 ENTER.

How do i do a number 'to the power of 1/2 or 2/3? cheers Brad

Power 1/2 is the same as square root: You can use the square root key to the left of the square key.
Similarly power 1/3 is the cube root. You use the [SHIFT][Square root] key sequence.
Power 2/3 is the square of the cube root, or the cube root of the square.

More generally, you can use the universal power key, marked with X with a raised white rectangle. It is between X square and log.

Ex: Calculate 15^(2/3)
15 [X with raised rectangle] 2 [/] 3 [)] [=]; the result is 6.082
The last parenthesis closes the left parenthesis introduced by the calculator.
Alternatively you can use the cube root and the x-root selections available under the MATH menu.(selections 4 and 5)

How do you tak the square root of 64 or the 4 root of any other #

Hi shiny_diamon
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.

Square roots

One way is you get square root by raising to the (1/2) power. For example square root of 16 is
You can use this method to get the other "roots" as well e.g. 1/3, 1/4, etc.

How to get the square root using a ti-30xa calculator?

Come on now....there are dedicated "square" and "square root" keys on the TI-30XA....

Enter your number e.g. 4, then press the "root x" key to get 2...

Press "x squared" key to get the square of 2 = 4

There's the even more useful "y to the power x" key and it's inverse "xth root of y" key.

E.g. Enter 2, then press the "y to the power x" key, then 5, then =, answer is 32 (2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2). Starting with 32, pres 2nd then the "y to the power x" key, then 5, then =, answer is 2, the 5th root of 32....
