# Rendering a beautiful square root with MathJax.

We all know that to render a square root in $\mathit{MathJax}$ we just need to write \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} which will be rendered as: $$\sqrt{\frac{a}{b}}$$ But I want to make it look prettier just like this (the left one):

WikiPedia has an article about it that you can find here, but the procedure they suggest doesn't work with $\mathit{MathJax}$.

So does anyone know how to make it look like shown in the left image? Thanks in advance.

• @Potato I don't think so. – user93957 Dec 22 '13 at 9:43
• On my screen (Chrome with 125% magnification), the horizontal line of the square root is detached from the left "v" part. – Frenzy Li Dec 22 '13 at 10:59
• This two versions of root were also compared on TeX.SE: “Closed” (square) root symbol – Martin Sleziak Dec 22 '13 at 15:59
