    Yes, it can.
    It's actually pretty neat because it'll give you a decimal answer and an answer in simplest radical form. (9.797958971 and 4√6)

    It can do much more advanced math than square roots if I remember correctly.

    Can you ask it what the square root of 69 is and post what it says?
    If it says "8 something" I will laugh hard.

    Siri will integrate with WolframAlpha for math questions. You can type a question into wolframalpha.com to see how Siri might answer it, e.g. "what is the exponential of 3"

    I know for a fact that it will do calculus tasks like finding the derivative of a problem. (High school ap calc student here)

    I used to use wolfram alpha for super complicated math problems, so I know the power of it. It in itself, combined with SIRI, is an amazing tool.
