    What does "Rootof" mean?

    My CAS is saying RootOf, now this is clearly different than sqrt or cbrt, any ideas what it means?

    What is CAS?
    I would interpret rootof to be the square root.

    I would interpret the root of f(x) to be the value of x such that f(x)=0

    If that helps :confused:
