The use of radical expressions as the inverse of exponents extends beyond the power of two. While the **square root** is the inverse operation for a power of 2, there are **cube roots, fourth roots, fifth roots**, and so on for other powers. Generally, we call these “Nth roots.” Your homework tonight is HW 4.4 – Evaluating Nth Roots. I’ve uploaded the notes here, and you can check out this video for some more examples (and instructions for evaluating nth roots on the calculator).
