# Calculating the Twelfth Root of 2

In an exploration of musical scales, I am pasting in the twelfth root of 2, which suffices in this application.

However, is there a Snap! operator that can be used to calculate the twelfth root of 2?

You can just use this:

This works because nth root of a number is just hat number to the 1/n power.

Perfect. (Thanks!)

Playing with equal temperament, @glenbull? @legoman3.14's formula is the one I always use for that, too

@jens @legoman3.14 Yes, that's exactly right. It's an interesting subject, as you know, and we're enjoying exploration of some variants.

you should press solution, @glenbull on @legoman3.14's post.

Thanks!
