for guidance with formatting. Be aware with regards to the square rootsymbol, you will notice that it only shows the front part of a radicaland not the top bar. Thus, it is impossible to tell how much of anexpression is included in the radical itself unless you use parenthesis.For example, if we have √12 + 9 it is not enough for us to know if the 9is under the radical with the 12 or not. Therefore, we must specifywhether we mean it to say √(12) + 9 or √(12 + 9), as there is a bigdifference between the two. This distinction is important in yournotation.Another solution is to type the letters “sqrt” in place of theradical and use parenthesis to indicate how much is included in theradical as described in the second method above. The example above wouldappear as either “sqrt(12) + 9” or “sqrt(12 + 9)” depending on what weneeded it to say.
