convert fractional power to radical
Can displayed results with fractional powers be shown with an equivalent radical (√) sign, instead? Is there a toggle for this?

I'm curious too how to obtain conversion, i.e., from 1/(x^3) into [3]√x or thing like that... \( x^{\frac{1}{3}} \space \text{::} \sqrt[3]{x} \) ∫aL√0mic (IT9CLU), HP Prime 50g 41CX 71b 42s 12C 15C  DM42 WP34s :: Prime Soft.

RE: convert fractional power to radical
Yes. I haven't found a way to do that.

If it's in there it'd be in one of the algebraic expansion functions.

RE: convert fractional power to radical
There is a way to do this in a program. You'd have to write a function as follows...
Convert the expression to a string. Then, wherever NTHROOT shows up in the string, substitute for dd NTHROOT x with x^(1/dd). Likewise, to go the other direction, search for x^(1/dd) and convert to dd NTHROOT x, still in string format. Then call EXPR on the result. Enjoy. Publish this if you write it :)

RE: convert fractional power to radical
I'd like to have something like QPI (see here), but more general (also for x and variables) and ...built in in the CAS. Maybe someday... who knows?
Salvo EDIT: however, for now, i.e., in Home QPI(x^(½)) returns 0, in CAS it, after some time, returns "Error: insufficient memory"... and no result. ∫aL√0mic (IT9CLU), HP Prime 50g 41CX 71b 42s 12C 15C  DM42 WP34s :: Prime Soft. Lib

Hello,
The problem is that this is a hard nut to crack and can yeild fairly long calculations. Cyrille Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own. I do not speak for HP.
