MathML - Radicals


Advertisements


msqrt and mroot elements construct radicals. The msqrt element constructs square roots, while the mroot element constructs radicals with indices, for example a cube root.

<msqrt> element

<msqrt> tag is used to draw square root.

Syntax

Here is the simple syntax to use this tag −

<msqrt> base </msqrt>

Parameters

Here is the description of all the parameters of this tag −

  • base − base expression on which the square root is to be drawn.

Attributes

Here is the description of all the attributes of this tag −

  • mathbackground − To specify the background color. Valid formats are #rgb, #rrggbb and html color names.

  • mathcolor − To specify the text color. Valid formats are #rgb, #rrggbb and html color names.

Example

Let's draw a square root.

Live Demo
<math xmlns = "http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML">
   <msqrt>  
      <mn>4</mn>  
   </msqrt>
</math>

Output

4

<mroot> element

<mroot> tag is used to draw radicals with indices.

Syntax

Here is the simple syntax to use this tag −

<mroot> base index </mroot>

Parameters

Here is the description of all the parameters of this tag −

  • base − base expression on which the square root is to be drawn.

  • index − index of the root to be drawn.

Attributes

Here is the description of all the attributes of this tag −

  • mathbackground − To specify the background color. Valid formats are #rgb, #rrggbb and html color names.

  • mathcolor − To specify the text color. Valid formats are #rgb, #rrggbb and html color names.

Example

Let's draw a cube root.

Live Demo
<math xmlns = "http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML">
   <mroot>  
      <mn>8</mn>  
      <mn>3</mn>  
   </mroot>
</math> 

Output

8 3
