I cannot figure out how to input a cube root into this calculator. I can do it with my ti 83 but it converts it into decimals. I need the cube root in front of the square root sign.

Hi saltflat,

If you don't have a cube root function like the TI-83/84 has, then just raise the base to the one-third power.

okay an example of what i need is i have the problem with a cube root of 16 which my book is telling me the answer should be 2 the square root check with my cube root then another two under this. what am i doing wrong.

Your problem is that you don't understand the basic algebra of surds.
