### How do you display a square root symbol using word pad?

WordPad is not meant to handle the typesetting and display of
mathematical expressions. You can use this radical symbol: √ to
display simple square roots, but you can't extend the mark above
the thing you're taking the square root of. To display more complex
expressions, you need a program like MathType, which is
specifically designed to typeset math.
