I want to place the n from the \sqrt[n]{\rho} command in a more visible position and make it bigger too.

enter image description here

MWE:

\sqrt[n]{\rho}

  • can you ask that original to be more descriptive on his question title? That sloppy title could mean a bunch of things, hence why it was not recommended when I was typing the title for this duplicate. – Suppboi Aug 29 '19 at 17:37

Package amsmath defines the \leftroot and \uproot commands to adjust the position of n. By default the size is \scriptscriptstyle. Compare different codes for this:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{mathtools}

\begin{document}


\[ \sqrt[n]{\rho}\quad \sqrt[\leftroot{-1}\uproot{1}n]{\rho}\quad \sqrt[\leftroot{-1}\uproot{1}\scriptstyle n]{\rho} \]%

\end{document}

  • i thank you. i had to use -2 and 2 for this font – Suppboi Aug 28 '19 at 15:22

The amsmath package provides the commands \uproot and \leftroot to modify the placemet of the root index.

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\begin{document}
$\sqrt[\rho]{n}\ \sqrt[\uproot{2}\leftroot{2}\rho]{n}\ \sqrt[\uproot{2}\leftroot{-1}\rho]{n}$
\end{document}

    Do you really prefer ρ-th roots? ;o) – Bernard Aug 28 '19 at 9:42

    @Bernard - Moving \rho around seemed a lot more exciting... – Mico Aug 28 '19 at 9:48
  • An erhoctile ρ, so to say? – Bernard Aug 28 '19 at 9:51
  • @Bernard - No comment... :-) – Mico Aug 28 '19 at 11:00
