\(\displaystyle /squareroot 2 \)

You start with pushing the calculator button in the scroll bar, the one between the flag icon and the x squared icon.how do you do root ?

\(\displaystyle /squareroot 2 \)

That gives you the tags to invoke Latex.

To get a square root, you type between the tags \sqrt{121} = 11. That results in

\(\displaystyle \sqrt{121} = 11.\)

To get a higher root, you type between the tags \sqrt[5]{32} = 2. That results in

\(\displaystyle \sqrt[5]{32} = 2.\)

The simplest way to learn Latex is to use the reply button on posts that contain LaTeX and look at the code.

Thanks for posting the link. I'm surprised that \sqrt{} and \sqrt[]{} are not predefined in the TeX package (or, perhaps, their omission from the wiki list was an oversight). I've added your link to the LaTeX notice, along with Dan's.… a good website, easy and user friendly …
