What is the square root symbol in Word format
The Square Root symbol in Word is the same as for any application and even as
handwritten, and means "A divisor of a quantity that when squared gives the quantity". "Where" the symbol is in Word is simple, either under Insert, Symbol, any font, Mathematical Operators, or shortcut of 221A, AltX. Hope this helps.

Hi Veena,
Word can do a lot better than just create the piece of the square root sign without the line over the radicand. In Word you can create a real square root by using Equation Editor, or you can use the EQ field code in the following manner (which I personally find simpler than starting up with Equation Editor): 1) Type EQ \r( 2) Right after the opening parenthesis, type the number or numerical expression that you want be under the square root sign and then type a closing parenthesis. 3) Block everything that you just typed and press CTRL+F9. At this point you should see something like {EQ \r(YourNumber)} on a gray background. 4) Press Alt+F9 twice. When you move the cursor away, the gray background will disappear.  Hope this helps, Pesach Shelnitz
