>The formula for the nth root is [number]^(1/n)

Perfectly true and *very* helpful to know! I was only hoping to help out here by having something we, the more computer-savvy types, can pass on to our computer-phobic friends and relatives.

BTW, for those of us with a $99 spreadsheet (just a step above the $4 calculator), here are the ways in which an n-th root may be computed:

Way #1: =[number]^(1/n)

Way #2: =EXP(LN([number])/n)

Way #3: =POWER([number],1/n)

I personally find Way #2 the most efficient.
