I was hoping someone may be able to help.
I am a Police Officer and I am designing a form to keep track of our Breaching information. I have completed writing the script for all of the fields on the form, but the last two are above me. Here it is. On one of them I have to figure the cube root (1/3rd power) of a value that is acquired from another field. The script I tried is as follows:

var a = this.getField("FieldName");
event.value = Math.pow(a,1/3);

when I put this in I get a message that tells me that the value does not match the format of the field.

The last one I have to divide two values and then take that to the power of 0.72:

I tried:

var a = this.getField("FieldName1");
var b = this.getField("FieldName2");
var c = a.value / b.value;
event.value = Math.pow(c,.72);

this did not work

There is a dent in my desk where I have been pounding my head, can someone plese help.
