For example: 2 to the power of 5 is 32 so the fifth root of 32 must be 2

X1/5 [X to the power of 0,2] is the fifth root of X

On a sufficiently advanced calculator there is a button labled XY use it to find the fifth root by entering the number, then pushing the[ XY ] button then [0] [,] [2]

On even more advanced calculators (like the scientific calculator that comes with Windows7) there is a root button so you enter your number, then press the root button, then 5
