is there a way to ask sage to typeset $$\sqrt[3]{x}$$ rather than $$x^{1/3}$$ latex(sqrt(x)) does fine but I cant fingure out the general nth root radical notation command

Hmm, 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.
