Hopefully you've learned that "square root of x" means $\Large \sqrt{x}$ that's the mathmetical notation way to write it

later on you'll learn that fractional exponents represent radicals and roots so $\LARGE \sqrt{x} = x^{{}^\frac{1}{2}}$ $\LARGE \sqrt[3]{x} = x^{{}^\frac{1}{3}}$ $\LARGE \sqrt[4]{x} = x^{{}^\frac{1}{4}}$ $\LARGE \sqrt[n]{x} = x^{{}^\frac{1}{n}}$ where n is any integer
