Problem with nth square root of any number
OK, so now I think this is sending me crazy. I'm looking at a problem that is a mathematical problem. Now I have no problem coming up with a solution to it, that runs in under 1 second. However I want to do it using some funky Math. Anyways, after working out the Math I got one of the equations I need to compute down to
Or the 6th root of n.
Now the Java code I have for this is as follows, since Java has no nth root function I'm raising it to a power of a 1/6.
Now, the only thing it will print is 1.0
However the 6th root of 64 is 2!!!!
I'm going crazy please help
