This example shows the various possibilities to plot the graph of the function

$\mathbb{R} \to \mathbb{R}, x \mapsto x^{1/3}$

There are the following choices:

• "Math.pow(x, 1/3)": this JavaScript function is restricted to positive values of $x$
• "JXG.Math.cbrt(x)": cube root function which is able to compute the real cube root of $x$. It is alos available in most browsers as "Math.cbrt()". The JSXGraph makes cbrt available alos on old browsers.
• "JXG.Math.nthroot(x, 3)": general method in JSXGraph to compute the real $n$-th root of a real number.

### The underlying JavaScript code

var board = JXG.JSXGraph.initBoard('jxgbox', {
axis:true,
boundingbox:[-5, 5, 5, -5],
showFullscreen: true
});

var plot1 = board.create('functiongraph', ["nthroot(x, 3)"], {withLabel: true, name:'nthroot(x,3)'});
var plot2 = board.create('functiongraph', ["cbrt(x) + 1"], {withLabel: true, name:'cbrt(x)+1', strokeColor: 'black'});
var plot3 = board.create('functiongraph', [(x) => Math.pow(x, 1/3) - 1], {
withLabel: true,
name:'Math.pow(x, 1/3) - 1',
strokeColor: 'red',
label: {position: 'rt', offset:[-100,-20]}
});
