Q5. Find the smallest number which when multiplied with 3600 will make the product a perfect cube. Further, find the cube root of the product.

Answer:

On factorising 3600 into prime factors, we get:

3600 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 5

On grouping the factors in triples of equal factors, we get:

3600 = {2 x 2 x 2} x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 5

It is evident that the prime factors of 3600 cannot be grouped into triples of equal factors such that no factor is left over. Therefore, 3600 is not a perfect cube.

However, if the number is multiplied by (2 x 2 x 3 x 5 = 60), the factors can be grouped into triples of equal factors such that no factor is left over.

Hence, the number 3600 should be multiplied by 60 to make it a perfect cube.

Also, the product is given as:

3600 x 60 ={2 x 2 x 2} x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 5 x 60

216000 = {2 x 2 x 2} x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 5 x (2 x 2 x 3 x 5)

216000 ={2 x 2 x 2}x {2 x 2 x 2} x {3 x 3 x 3} x {5 x 5 x 5}

To get the cube root of the produce 216000, take one factor from each triple.

Cube root = 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 = 60

 

Q6. Multiply 210125 by the smallest number so that the product is a perfect cube. Also, find out the cube root of the product.

Answer:

On factorising 210125 into prime factors, we get: 210125 = 5 x 5 x 5 x 41 x 41

On grouping the factors in triples of equal factors, we get: 210125 = {5 x 5 x x 41 x 41

It is evident that the prime factors of 210125 cannot be grouped into triples of equal factors such that no factor is left over. Therefore, 210125 is not a perfect cube. However, if the number is multiplied by 41, the factors can be grouped into triples of equal factors such that no factor is left over.

Hence, the number 210125 should be multiplied by 41 to make it a perfect cube. Also, the product is given as: 210125 x 41 = {5 x 5 x 5} x {41 x 41 x 41} 8615125 = {5 x 5 x x {41 x 41 x 41} To get the cube root of the produce 8615125, take one factor from each triple. The cube root is 5 x 41 = 205. Hence, the required numbers are 41 and 205.

 

 

Q7. What is the smallest number by which 8192 must be divided so that quotient is a perfect cube? Also, find the cube root of the quotient so obtained.

Answer :     

On factorising 8192 into prime factors, we get:

8192 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2

On grouping the factors in triples of equal factors, we get:

8192 = {2 x 2 x 2} x {2 x 2 x 2} x {2 x 2 x 2} x {2 x 2 x 2} x 2

It is evident that the prime factors of 8192 cannot be grouped into triples of equal factors such that no factor is left over. Therefore, 8192 is not a perfect cube. However, if the number is divided by 2, the factors can be grouped into triples of equal factors such that no factor is left over.

Hence, the number 8192 should be divided by 2 to make it a perfect cube.

Also, the quotient is given as:

\(\frac{8192}{2} = \frac{{2 \times 2 \times 2} \times {2 \times 2 \times 2} \times {2 \times 2 \times 2} \times {2 \times 2 \times 2} \times 2}{2}\)

4096 = {2 x 2 x 2} x {2 x 2 x 2} x {2 x 2 x 2} x {2 x 2 x 2}

To get the cube root of the quotient 4096, take one factor from each triple. We get:

Cube root = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 16

Hence, the required numbers are 2 and 16.

 

 

Q8. Three numbers are in the ratio 1 : 2 : 3. The sum of their cubes is 98784. Find the numbers.

Answer:

Let the numbers be x, 2x and 3x

Therefore

\(x^{3} + (2x)^{3} + (3x)^{3} = 98784 \\ => x^{3} + 8x^{3} + 27x^{3} = 98784 \\ => 36 x^{3} = 98784 \\ => x^{3} = \frac{98784}{36} \\ => x^{3} = 2744 \\ => x = \sqrt[3]{2744} = \sqrt[3]{{2 \times 2 \times 2} \times {7 \times 7 \times 7}} = 2 \times 7 = 14 \\\)

Hence, the numbers are 14, (2 x 14 = 28) and (3 x 14 = 42)

 

Q9. The volume of a cube is 9261000 m3. Find the side of the cube.

Answer:

Volume of a cube is given by:

V = s3, where s = Side of the cube

It is given that the volume of the cube is 9261000 m3; therefore, we have:

s3 = 9261000

Let us find the cube root of 9261000 using prime factorisation:

9261000 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 7 x 7 x 7 = {2 x 2 x 2} x {3 x 3 x 3} x {5 x 5 x 5} x {7 x 7 x 7}

9261000 could be written as triples of equal factors; therefore, we get: Cube root = 2 x 3 x 5 x 7 = 210

Therefore

s3 = 9261000

s = (9261000)(1/3) = 210

Hence, the length of the side of cube is 210 m.
