Need help writing math.

    I need to write, (k)1/2= a finite term polynomial of 'k' where 'k' is the set of all Reals where 'k' is greater than 0 in math.

    You can't write [itex]\sqrt{k}[/itex] as a polynomial in k over [itex]\mathbb{R}[/itex].

    That is interesting because you can, but that isn't the question. How do I go from my statement to 'math'.
