    By "fourth root of 19/21", they mean the quantity [itex](19/21)^{1/4}[/itex].

    Like in your other question, you would like to find the x meeting the condition "x^3 is ignorable" and such that


    You will find that x easily by solving this last equation for x.

    Then, with n=1/4, your polynomial formula gives you the wished approximation.
