# How to Calculate Square Root & Cube Root in Google Sheets

You can use the following formula to calculate the square root of a value in Google Sheets:

```=SQRT(A1)
```

And you can use the following formula to calculate the cube root of a value in Google Sheets:

`=A1^(1/3)`

The following examples show how to use each formula in practice.

### Example 1: Calculate Square Root in Google Sheets

The following screenshot shows how to calculate the square root of values in Google Sheets:

Note that we typed the following formula into cell B2:

`=SQRT(A2)`

We then copy and paste this formula down to every cell in column B.

### Example 2: Calculate Cube Root in Google Sheets

The following screenshot shows how to calculate the cube root of values in Google Sheets:

Note that we typed the following formula into cell B2:

`=A2^(1/3)`

We then copy and paste this formula down to every cell in column B.

### Example 3: Calculate Nth Root in Google Sheets

We can use the following generic formula to calculate the nth root of a value in Google Sheets:

`=A2^(1/n)`

For example, we could use the following formula to calculate the fourth root of a value:

`=A2^(1/4)`

The following screenshot shows how to calculate the fourth root of values in Google Sheets:

Note that we typed the following formula into cell B2:

`=A2^(1/4)`

We then copy and paste this formula down to every cell in column B.
