# Cube Root Formula

The cube of any number is found by multiplying the number three times. For example – 5 $\times$ 5 $\times$ 5 = 125.

The cube root formula is the vice versa of the cube formula. Check the example below for detail –

5 cube = $5^{3}$ = $125$

Cube Root of 125 = $\sqrt[3]{125}$ = $5$

Thus, cube root of 125 is 5. The number 125 is a perfect cube.

### Cubes of some number are as follows –

$1^{3}$ = $1$

$2^{3}$ = $8$

$3^{3}$ = $27$

$4^{3}$ = $64$

$5^{3}$ = $125$

$6^{3}$ = $216$

$7^{3}$ = $343$

$8^{3}$ = $512$

$9^{3}$ = $729$

$10^{3}$ = $1000$

### Solved Examples

**Question 1:**What is the cube root of 1728?

**Solution:**

The factors of 1728 are given as,

1728 = 12 $\times$ 12 $\times$ 12

$\sqrt[3]{1728}$ = $\sqrt[3]{12 \times 12 \times 12}$

^{
}$\sqrt[3]{1728}$ = 12
