Root or base word of happily?

My son has this homwork about root or base words. We got stuck on one word ... Happily.
I tried asking so this morning but he was rushing out door,
Anyone can help plz?
I dont know if this word can become happy from happily If so how come? If y is not next to it.
Base and root words are quite unfamiliar with me. Honestly never learn or remeber them from school.

  • The root is happy. Remember with some words ending in "y" that the Y changes to i and add the ending like, s or ly.
