FAQ: Watch App - Square root using x^(1/y)

The Apple watch app uses CALCs default representation of it's root function. This is to allow square root (or any other root) while fitting it nicely in the limited screen space of the watch.

When you press the root button and get the reverse of the "x to the y power" i.e. x^(1/y) ... just type in the root reverse power number - for regular square root it's just the number two (2). So sqrt(4)  = 4^(1/2) == 2 and just as well then root(8;3) = 8^(1/3) == 2 also!

Happy rooting! :-)
