#### Cube Roots

The cube root of a number x is that number cube gives x. We denote the cube root of x by ∛x.

(i) Since (2 x 2 x 2) = 8, we have ∛8 = 2.

(ii) Since (5 x 5 x 5) = 125, we have ∛125 = 5.

##### Method of Finding the cube Root of a Given Number by Factorisation:

Step 1: Express the given number as the product of primes.

Step 2: Make groups in triplets of the same prime.

Step 3: Find the product of primes, choosing one from each triplet.

Step 4: This product is the required cube root of the given number.

##### Evaluate ∛216.

By prime factorisation, we have

216 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3

= (2 x 2 x 2) x (3 x 3 x 3) 216 = (2 x 3) = 6.

##### Cube Root of a Negative Perfect Cube

Let a be a positive integer. Then, (-a) is a negative integer.

We know that (-a)³ = -a³.

##### Find the cube root of (-1000).

Resolving 1000 into ∛ (-1000) = -∛1000.

1000 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 5 x 5

∛1000 = (2 x 5) = 10.

∛-1000 = -∛1000 = -10.

##### Cube Root of Product of Integers

We have, ∛ab = ∛a x ∛b

##### Evaluate ∛ (125 x 64)

We have:

∛ (125 x 64) = ∛ (125) x ∛ (64)

∛ (5 x 5 x 5) x ∛ (4 x 4 x 4) = 5 x 4 = 20

Cube Root of a Rational Number

We have, ∛ (a/b) = ∛a / ∛b

##### Evaluate: ∛ (27/64)

We have, ∛ (27/64) = ∛27 / ∛64

= ∛ (3 x 3 x 3)/ ∛ (4 x 4 x 4)

= ¾

##### What Is a Perfect Cube?

A perfect cube is a number that is the cube of an integer. Some examples of perfect cubes are 1, 8, 27, 64.

##### How do you find the cube root of 729?

The cube root of 729, denoted as ∛729, is a value which after getting multiplied by itself thrice gives the original value. This is the usual definition of the cube root of a number. Let us say, ‘n’ is the value of 3√729, then n × n × n = n³ = 729.

= 9 x 9 x 9 = 9
