Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculator

Type the root number (say 4) then Press the MATH button. Press 5 for the xth root then type in the number you are taking the root of (say 16). Then press ENTER. For the 4th root of 16, you should get 2.

It can handle square root but if result requires too much display space it will be displayed as a decimal.As to higher order roots such as cube , 4th and higher they are displayed as decimal. Sorry, there is nothing you can do about it.

Use the cube-root function, which is the shifted function of the square-root key (third row, second column). For example, to find the cube root of 8, press

SHIFT [cube-root] 8 =

SHIFT [cube-root] 8 =

Almost exactly the way it's written in the book.

In the LineIO mode press

3 SHIFT [xth-root] 5 0 0 0 * 3 / ( 4 * SHIFT [pi] ) ) =

In the MathIO mode press

SHIFT [xth-root] 3 right-arrow 5 0 0 0 * 3 / ( 4 * SHIFT [pi]) =

xth-root is the shifted function of the key just below and right of the big round cursor pad.

* is the multiply key

/ is the divide key

pi is the shifted function of the x10^x key in the middle of the bottom row

BTW there's no "square root" in this problem. There's a "cube root" or "third root". Square root is the second root.

For cube roots, use the cube-root function in the MATH menu. For example, to calculate the cube root of 8, press MATH 4 8 =

For other roots (including cube root), use the xth-root function in the MATH menu. For example, to calculate the fifth root of 32, press 5 MATH 4 3 2 =

You can calculate cube roots by using the cube root function (the 2nd-shift of the 0 key). You can calculate arbitrary roots by using the x-root function (the 2nd-shift of the y^x key, just above the divide key).

Hello,

Certain calculators such as the HP 48G are designed to return the complex principal root for any fractional exponent. Yours appanrently cannot handle complex roots, or is not in complex mode.

To get the real number root, compute the radicand first (-64)^2 using the**x^2**
key then compute the cube root using the cube root key, if there is one, or the general root key or even the general power key with exponent 1/3.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

If you want to take the nth root, enter the root first then press math 5 and then the number you are trying to take the root of. For example to take the 4th root of 1000, press 4, math, 5, 1000, enter.

The TI-89 has one function to find whatever root you want of a number.

To find the cubed root of say...64, you would type:

root(64,3)

To find the cubed root of say...64, you would type:

root(64,3)

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.
