• Can you upload a picture of the symbol? Also, which country are you referring to? – Ian Thompson Oct 12 '15 at 11:09
• Welcome to TeX - LaTeX! What is a radical symbol? How does it look like? In which field is it used? – clemens Oct 12 '15 at 11:12
• @clemens: I assume the sqrt symbol √ – user31729 Oct 12 '15 at 11:22
• Isn't this a math.stackexchange problem (if radical means root)? Anyway, I know historically ℞ (\textrecipe) was used as radical symbol, stands for radix. – Francis Oct 12 '15 at 11:56
• Are you sure she didn't say "radix"? If so radix (in the US and most English speaking countries) is the decimal point (.) used to separate the integer part from the fractional part of a real number. Commas (,) are used for separating groups of three digits in the integer part. But a large number of countries it is reversed; they use commas to separate the fractional part and the decimal to separate digits of an integer. – William 'Ike' Eisenhauer Oct 12 '15 at 12:20
