comment Compute $\sqrt[7]{0.999}$ to three decimal places.(From Gelfand's Algebra text.)
I don't agree with your assumption; my assumption is that Gelfand was looking for a smarter answer like mine, given that the numbers involved are so close to 1. (If he'd asked, say, to compute the cube root of 3.257, then I'd expect that he was looking for the long-multiplication answer.) But I can't prove this.

comment Is $\int_0^\infty x^{a-1} (1-x)^{b-1} e^{t-cx} dx$ integrable?
Thanks! I hadn't realized that your context was a beta distribution, and this was the first thing that came to mind.
