How is the Sursolid Root, or the Root of any other higher Power extracted ? : A. By the following general Rules. If any even power be given, let the Square Root of it be extracted, which reduces it to half of the given Power, then the Square Root of that Power resluces it to half of the same power, and so on till you come to a square of a Cube. For example: Suppose a 241h Power be given : the Square Root of that reduces it to a 12th Power, the Squaro Root of the 12th Power reduces it to a 6th Power, and the Square Root of the 6th Power to a Cube. 2 If any odd Power he given, as the 17th, fic. observe [1] From the Unity Place, both ways, point off at every such Number of figures as is the Index of the power for a Resolvend. [2] Seek in the Table of Powers, for such a power (being the same Power with the Index) as comes nearest the first Period, whether greater or less, calling its Root accordingly more than just, or less than just. (3) Annex so many Cyphers to the Root, as there are of the square, Periods of whole Numbers in the given Resolvend. [4] Find the difference between the given Resolvend and the power coming nearest the first Period. [5] Whatever odd power is given, the next lowest odd power to that of the said root must be found with its annexed cyphers ; i. e. if the ninth power be given, find the 7th power of the root and cyphers: if the lith power be given, find the 9th, d'e. [6] Multiply the next lowest odd power by the Index of the given power, and let that product be a divisor to the difference between the given resolvend and power first found, which depresses it to a square. [7] Point this square into periods of two figures cach. [8] Then make the first root without ils cyplier a divisor, and ask how oft it may be found in the first period [9] If the divisor be less than just, you must multipyi the quotient figure by half the iudex, i e if the index be 11, multiply the quotient figure by 5; if the index be 9, multiply it by 4, d.e. and add it to the divisor; but if it be more than just, you must subtract it from the divisor, having a cypher annexed or supposed to be annexed to the divisor ; which sum or difference must be multiplied by the said quotient figure, and so continued to every pew figure in the quotient. [10] If the first root with its cyphers be more than just, the quotient must be subtracted from it; but if it be less than just, it must be added to it; and the sum or difference will be the root required. 3. If an even power be giver, and the square root of that power be extracted, reduce it to an odd power ; you must then proceed with that odd power as the foregoing rules direct. EXAMPLES. .6436343 3236343 The cobe of 20 is =8000 And 8000 X5 is=40000 Then 40000)323634530 Again 2 )80 3 + 3 +2=678 Lastly 20 +3 23 the sursolid N? Ist divisor=26 Root required 2 to be rejected. Note. This is a very expeditious way of extracting the roots of high powers, but it is not always exact, because (as Àr. Ward observes, for it was taken from him) there will be à remainder, and sometimes an Excess or Defect in the last Figure of the root, when the given resolvend or power hath a true root-as appears by the fifth example following, whose true root should not be 384.3, as it there stands, but 384. 2.
