I read that for b^(1/n), there are n distinct complex answers. Can someone please give the answers for n=3, n=4 and n=5? I am having trouble visualising what the answers would be.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am aware of that, but does that really give 4 distinct answers for b^(1/4)? Sorry if I'm being thick, but the answer doesn't seem to help with b^(1/n) for any other numbers.
