How to Write Root in Office Word


The square root symbol (√) represents the corresponding mathematical function. Unlike a few common symbols for operations, it doesn't have its own button on your keyboard. You can, however, type it from your keyboard using the symbol's ASCII hexidecimal value. Hold down your keyboard's "Alt" button and type "251" from the number pad to insert the root symbol into text. Microsoft Word also provides a way to insert the symbol without needing to remember this shortcut.

  • Click "Insert" from Word's menu bar.

  • Click "Symbol" from the "Symbols" tab.

  • Click "More symbols..." from the drop-down menu. This opens the "Symbols" dialog box.

  • Select "Mathematical Operators" from the "Subset:" drop-down menu.

  • Click the root symbol, which is the fourth symbol in the third row.

  • Click the "Insert" button.
