There are millions of users of LibreOffice being able to make use of the online materials provided by the DocumentFoundation - which not is "we" or "you". Those who try to help here are volunteers, and the basic principle of forums like this one is still "peer-to-peer", though many users seem to take a customer position. In fact there are no customers. LibO is free and open.
The purpose of online materials concerning LibreOffice Calc, however, isn't in the first place to help understanding math.

If you meant "Finnish":
There is no Finnish version, but you can set the UI-language and/or the locale to Finnish. This is a forum in English language, however, and you shouldn't expect contributors to know the Finnish name of the POWER() function.
For taking an n-th root there is not a specific function in spreadsheets. You need to either use the POWER() function or the operator ^ for exponentiation. In both cases you need to apply a bit of your knowledge from mathematical education. That's about using rational numbers -in specific those with a numerator of 1- as exponents.
Nothing related to what you call "your software".

Quoting from the edited question: "me and my classmates are having this issue and your website is no use"
Of course, the online help (and additional meterials) concerning LibreOffice Calc aren't made to replace math lessons (or attention by pupils to those).
You need to understand that n_th root of a = a^(1/n) and that's nothing to do with any specifics of any spreadsheet software. It's simply math. And if you didn't already learn about the quoted identity, you are using the wrong tool.
