There is a way to do it. I believe you go into "complex" or "math" buttons. These buttons are yellow on the calculator. Therefore, to access them you must hit "2nd" then the button.

Better yet, you can also get around this dilemma another way. You can enter "the cubed root of x" by raising x to 1/3.

For example the cubed root of x = x^(1/3). It is best to place parentheses around 1/3 so the calculator knows exactly what you mean.

Another example, the "cubed root of (x + 1)" can be entered by:
(x+1)^(1/3) Note the parenteses around both (x+1) and (1/3). This applies if the radical cover both "x" and "1".

Hope this helps.

Cube root on standard calculator From the identity:
, there is a simple method to compute cube roots using a non-scientific calculator, using only the multiplication and square root buttons, after the number is on the display. No memory is required.

• Press the square root button once.
• Press the multiplication button.
• Press the square root button twice.
• Press the multiplication button.
• Press the square root button four times.
• Press the multiplication button.
• Press the square root button eight times.
• Press the multiplication button...
This process continues until the number does not change after pressing the multiplication button because the repeated square root gives 1 (this means that the solution has been figured to as many significant digits as the calculator can handle). Then, press the square root button one last time. At this point an approximation of the cube root of the original number will be shown in the display.
If the first multiplication is replaced by division, instead of the cube root, the fifth root will be shown on the display.

 Why this method works After raising x to the power in both sides of the above identity, one obtains:
(*) The left hand side is the cube root of x.
The steps shown in the method give:
After 2nd step:
After 4th step:

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.

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).

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.

There's a cube root function as the fourth item in the MATH menu. The fifth item is a general root function.

For example, to calculate the cube root of 8, press MATH 4 8 ENTER

How to find cube root.

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.

You can multiply a number by 1/3rd to get the cube root or

Under the MATH button, the fourth option down will give you cube root. Any n root beyond that will require the x^(1/n) method.
