How can I convert a small decimal number to a radical?
Hi, is there any way to convert a small decimal number like 1.414213562 back to its radical form like back to the square root of 2?

If the number is the square root of something, then square the number to to transform it back to its radical form
Like, n = the number,
So, sqrt(n^2) is its radical form.

If n is cube root of something.
