There is NO square root symbol on ANY pc keyboard ( unless its a specially made scientific numberpad integrated keyboard).

You will have to use the windows character map in you menu to find the symbol.

There are limits to what the calculator can display in symbolic form, and roots beyond the second (square roots) are beyond its capabilities. Even something as simple as the cube root of 2 will be displayed numerically.

Sorry, but the fx-115ES can only display square roots in radical form. Cube roots are beyond its symbolic capabilities and will always be in decimal form.

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.

Square root of 39: Press 3 9 [square-root] =

[square-root] is the key just to the left of the divide key.

Cube root of 9482: Press 9 4 8 2 2nd [cube-root] =

[cube-root] is the shifted function of the 0 key.

For other roots, you can use the [nth-root] function, the shifted function of the key above the divide key. For example, to calculate the fourth root of 16, press 1 6 2nd [nth-root] 4 =

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.

On your calculator, in the 4th column and third row down you should see the root x symbol. In order to do a radical, just press a number and then press the root x and you shall get the square root of your number. Now in order to do this for cubed root, fourth root, etc, you have to hit the number you want to put in the radical, the 2nd key, look for the y^x key in the last column second row, and then the number outside the radical. For example, if you wanted to do the cubed root of 8, you would hit 8, 2nd y^x, 3, and you should get 2.

Let the sides of the cubes be a and b,

the length of the diagonal of the cube whose side is b is given as square root(3)*b

according to the given question,

a=square root(3)*b

the volume of the cube with side a is given as

v1=a^3=(square root(3)*b)^3

and the volume of the cube with side b is

v2=b^3

then their ratio of volumes is given as

v1/v2=3*square root(3)*b^3/b^3=3*square root(3)

i.e v1:v2=3*square root(3):1

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)

Hello,

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.

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.
