How do i enter the fith root of a number into my calculator

Use the general power key [Y^x], [X^y] or [^] with an exponent equal to 1/5. **N-th root is equivalent to ()^(1/N)**

SOURCE: Cube roots

You use the y^x (y to the x) key along with the 2nd function key. That does the opposite operation.

So, let's pick something we know the answer to as an example. How about the cube root of 8? We know 8 = 2 X 2 X 2, so the cube root of 8 will be 2.

Here's how:

8 2nd y^x 3 =

The display will show 2.

The three is the root you want. You can put in any number, with 2 being the square root, 3 the cube root, etc.

I am guessing, but, find the key that has a 3 to the left of the root symbol, looks like a check mark. Push it, then the number you want to take a cube root of, then enter.

Use the universal power key [^] with a fractionary exponent.

Fifth root of a number a is entered as a^(1/5).

**n root of number a is entered as a^(1/n)**

Careful: if the radicand (a) is negative, and the index of the root is even (2, 4, 6, ) the root is complex and the calculator will give you an error. If the index n is odd you can calculate the n-th root regardless of the sign of the radicand.

2^(1/5)=1.148698355

You can enter any root by typing the number, then hitting MATH and 5, which brings up the root symbol with the x in front of it: x√. So the fifth-root would be 5 -> MATH -> 5 and then whatever number you want to get the fifth-root for: 5x√10 for example. As someone else had mentioned, you can also raise it to a rational power: 3^(1/3) which would be the same as the cubed root of 3, but you could also type: 3 -> MATH -> 5 -> 3 and get the same answer, but looking like this in your calculator: 3x√3. The option for 4 actually is a predefined cubed-root, and the one for option 5 there is the root symbol that can be used with any number before it to get any root you want. There are no parenthesis as you get when using the predefined square-root and cubed-root functions, though, so you may want to type them in yourself if entering a long string of operations in the calculator at one time to make sure the calculator doesn't include numbers under the root that you don't want it to. But I guess it depends on preference in terms of what method you choose between the rational exponents or the root symbol (and most would go with whichever seems easiest and quickest to enter), but you asked specifically how to get the cubed-root on the TI-83 Plus, so there's my best attempt at answering your question.
