The gmp_root() is an in-built function in PHP which returns the integer part of the N-th root of a GMP number(GNU Multiple Precision: For large numbers).
gmp_pow( $num, $n )
Parameters: The function accepts two mandatory parameters $num and $n.
- $num – This is the GMP number whose integer part of the n-th root is returned. The parameter is a GMP object in PHP version 5.6 and later, or we are also allowed to pass a numeric string provided that it is possible to convert that string to a number.
- $n – the positive n-th root of the number. It is an integer value.
Return Value: This function returns a positive GMP number which is the integer part of the N-th root of the $num.
Input : $num = "20" $n = 2 Output : 4 Input : $num = "9" $n = 2 Output : 2
