I need to find the 20th root of 8974.26/7000. I’m allowed to use online calculators, but I’m unable to find one that lets me plug it in correctly.

Is this from a class of "numerical analysis"?

Both the calculator that comes with windows and the one I have on my Ipad let me do this easily.

Does your calculator have a xy button or a log button?

Does your calculator have a sqare root key?

Surely you are aware that 20= 2(10)?

To find the 20th root take the square root 10 times.

To find the 20th root take the square root 10 times.
That would give the 1024th root, now off to the corner for 8974.26/7000 hours
