I can't remember how to use power function "^" to find the nth root
of a number. To find the 2ndth root of a number we can use the "sqrt
()" function. But to find the nth root????
For instance, lets say I want to convert a number to scientific
notation (the 10th root of that number)... I used to know how to use
the power function to do this. Anyone remember how to do it?
I tried to get the 10th root (scientific notation) of 100 (which
should = 2) by: 100^(1/10) ... but that isn't it.
Any ideas? I feel brain dead.
