The square root key has a marking that looks like the letter V. It usually is the shifted function of the square key (^2).

Note that nth-root is the same as power to the (1/n). See a few examples below.

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.

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)

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.

Hello,

What we call roots: square, cube ,fourth roots, etc. can be shown in algebra to be equiavlent to powers with fractionary exponents where numerator is 1 and denomonator an integer.

**square root of a = a to the power 1/2**

**cube root of a = a to the power 1/3**

**n-th root of a = a raised to the power 1/n,** n integer different from 0.

How to use calculator to calculate cube root?

If you do not have a specific (shortcut) key for it you use the key to raise to an arbitrary power [^ ], sometimes shown as [x^y]. The exponent will be 1/3. Do not replace 1/3 by its decimal approximate.

Cube root of 27 is entered as**27 [^ ] (1/3)**

Hope it helps.

One way is you get square root by raising to the (1/2) power. For example square root of 16 is

16^(1/2).

You can use this method to get the other "roots" as well e.g. 1/3, 1/4, etc.

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.
