`latex(sqrt(x))` does fine but I cant fingure out the general nth root radical notation command

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/24836/typesetting-simple-nth-root-using-radical/?comment=24837#post-id-24837Hmm, I like this question but I don't know that we support it. (The reason being that we want to have one piece of code that handles all powers.) The are `nth_root` methods, but they all only work if there is an exact such root for various number types, not symbolics like here.Tue, 11 Nov 2014 20:45:30 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/24836/typesetting-simple-nth-root-using-radical/?comment=24837#post-id-24837
