Cube Root of 729

The cube root of 729, denoted as 3√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. Since 729 is a perfect cube, we will use the prime factorisation method, to get the cube root easily. Therefore, we need to find the value of n here.

Cube root of 729, 3√729 = 9

How to Find Cube Root of 729

Normally, we use prime factorisation method to find the factors of the given number, present under the cubic root. This root basically cancels the cubed number present within it.

Once we have evaluated prime factors of 729, we can pair them in a group of three which will give the cube of factors. Hence, after finding the cube of factors of the given number, we can apply the cube root, which gets cancelled with the cubes.

Let us understand it in a step by step procedure.

Step 1: Find the prime factors of 729

729 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3

Step 2: Clearly, 729 is a perfect cube. Here we will be using laws of exponents.

729 = 36 [am × an = am+n]

729 = [32]3 [(am)n = amn]

729 = 93

Step 3: Now, we will apply cube root to both the sides of the above expression to take out the factor as a single term, which is in cubes.

3√729 = 3√(93)

So, here the cube root is cancelled by the cube of 9.

Hence, 3√729 = 9
