Use the xth-root function. It's the shifted function of the y^x key, located just above the divide key. For example, to find the third root (cube root) of 64, press 6 4 2nd [xth-root] 3 =

Square root equivalent to power 1/2

Fifth root equivalent to power 1/5

square root of fifth root**(if argument of square root is positive)** is equivalent to power 1/10

64^(1/10)*q^(4/5)*v^(3/5)

using 64=2^6 you get**2^(3/5)*q^(4/5)*v^(3/5)**

Fifth root equivalent to power 1/5

square root of fifth root

64^(1/10)*q^(4/5)*v^(3/5)

using 64=2^6 you get

The square root of a negative number does not exist in lR, the set of real numbers.

In the set of Complex numbers the square root of -49/64 is (7/8)i, where i is the imaginary unit defined by i^2=-1.

- Use the universal power key marked with [^].
- To avoid problems if the exponent is an expression, enclose it in parentheses.
- To enter any power type number^(exponent)
- If exponent is negative use the (-) change sign key next to the dot, below the 3 key.
- To calculate the roots (cubic, fourth, fifth, etc.) roots use the fact that a root of n-th order can be represented as ^(1/n)
- Ex: cube root of 27: 27^(1/3); square root of 64 : 64^(1/2) or 64^(0.5)

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.

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.

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)
