Firstly let us find the prime factors of 1728

1728 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3

= 23 × 23 × 33

= 123

Hence, it’s a perfect cube.

21. For each of the non-perfect cubes in Q. No 20 find the smallest number by which it must be
(a) Multiplied so that the product is a perfect cube.
(b) Divided so that the quotient is a perfect cube.

Solution:

Only non-perfect cube in previous question was = 243

(a) Multiplied so that the product is a perfect cube.

Firstly let us find the prime factors of 243

243 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 33 × 32

Hence, to make it a perfect cube we should multiply it by 3.

(b) Divided so that the quotient is a perfect cube.

Firstly let us find the prime factors of 243

243 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 33 × 32

Hence, to make it a perfect cube we have to divide it by 9.

22. By taking three different, values of n verify the truth of the following statements:
(i) If n is even, then n3 is also even.
(ii) If n is odd, then n3 is also odd.
(ii) If n leaves remainder 1 when divided by 3, then n3 also leaves 1 as remainder when divided by 3.
(iv) If a natural number n is of the form 3p+2 then n3 also a number of the same type.

Solution:

(i) If n is even, then n3 is also even.

Let us consider three even natural numbers 2, 4, 6

So now, Cubes of 2, 4 and 6 are

23 = 8

43 = 64

63 = 216

Hence, we can see that all cubes are even in nature.

Statement is verified.

(ii) If n is odd, then n3 is also odd.

Let us consider three odd natural numbers 3, 5, 7

So now, cubes of 3, 5 and 7 are

33 = 27

53 = 125

73 = 343

Hence, we can see that all cubes are odd in nature.

Statement is verified.

(iii) If n leaves remainder 1 when divided by 3, then n3 also leaves 1 as remainder when divided by 3.

Let us consider three natural numbers of the form (3n+1) are 4, 7 and 10

So now, cube of 4, 7, 10 are

43 = 64

73 = 343

103 = 1000

We can see that if we divide these numbers by 3, we get 1 as remainder in each case.

Hence, statement is verified.

(iv) If a natural number n is of the form 3p+2 then n3 also a number of the same type.

Let us consider three natural numbers of the form (3p+2) are 5, 8 and 11

So now, cube of 5, 8 and 10 are

53 = 125

83 = 512

113 = 1331

Now, we try to write these cubes in form of (3p + 2)

125 = 3 × 41 + 2

512 = 3 × 170 + 2

1331 = 3 × 443 + 2

Hence, statement is verified.

23. Write true (T) or false (F) for the following statements:
(i) 392 is a perfect cube.
(ii) 8640 is not a perfect cube.
(iii) No cube can end with exactly two zeros.
(iv) There is no perfect cube which ends in 4.
(v) For an integer a, a3 is always greater than a2.
(vi) If a and b are integers such that a2>b2, then a3>b3.
(vii) If a divides b, then a3 divides b3.
(viii) If a2 ends in 9, then a3 ends in 7.
(ix) If a2 ends in an even number of zeros, then a3 ends in 25.
(x) If a2 ends in an even number of zeros, then a3 ends in an odd number of zeros.

Solution:

(i) 392 is a perfect cube.

Firstly let’s find the prime factors of 392 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 7 × 7 = 23 × 72

Hence the statement is False.

(ii) 8640 is not a perfect cube.

Prime factors of 8640 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 5 = 23 × 23 × 33 × 5

Hence the statement is True

(iii) No cube can end with exactly two zeros.

Statement is True.

Because a perfect cube always have zeros in multiple of 3.

(iv) There is no perfect cube which ends in 4.

We know 64 is a perfect cube = 4 × 4 × 4 and it ends with 4.

Hence the statement is False.

(v) For an integer a, a3 is always greater than a2.

Statement is False.

Because in case of negative integers ,

(-2)2 = 4 and (-2)3 = -8

(vi) If a and b are integers such that a2>b2, then a3>b3.

Statement is False.

In case of negative integers,

(-5)2 > (-4)2 = 25 > 16

But, (-5)3 > (-4)3 = -125 > -64 is not true.

(vii) If a divides b, then a3 divides b3.

Statement is True.

If a divides b

b/a = k, so b=ak

b3/a3 = (ak)3/a3 = a3k3/a3 = k3,

For each value of b and a its true.

(viii) If a2 ends in 9, then a3 ends in 7.

Statement is False.

Let a = 7

72 = 49 and 73 = 343

(ix) If a2 ends in an even number of zeros, then a3 ends in 25.

Statement is False.

Since, when a = 20

a2 = 202 = 400 and a3 = 8000 (a3 doesn’t end with 25)

(x) If a2 ends in an even number of zeros, then a3 ends in an odd number of zeros.

Statement is False.

Since, when a = 100

a2 = 1002 = 10000 and a3 = 1003 = 1000000 (a3 doesn’t end with odd number of zeros)

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

Solution:

Firstly let’s find the prime factors for 3600

3600 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 5

= 23 × 32 × 52 × 2

Since only one triples is formed and three factors remained ungrouped in triples.

The given number 3600 is not a perfect cube.

To make it a perfect cube we have to multiply it by (2 × 2 × 3 × 5) = 60

3600 × 60 = 216000

Cube root of 216000 is

∛216000 = ∛ (60×60×60) = ∛ (603) = 60

∴ the smallest number which when multiplied with 3600 will make the product a perfect cube is 60 and the cube root of the product is 60.

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

Solution:

The prime factors of 210125 are

210125 = 5 × 5 × 5 × 41 × 41

Since, one triples remained incomplete, 210125 is not a perfect cube.

To make it a perfect cube we need to multiply the factors by 41, we will get 2 triples as 23 and 413.

And the product become:

210125 × 41 = 8615125

8615125 = 5 × 5 × 5 × 41 × 41 × 41

Cube root of product = ∛8615125 = ∛ (5×41) = 205

7. 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.

Solution:

The prime factors of 8192 are

8192 = 2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2 = 23×23×23×2

Since, one triples remain incomplete, hence 8192 is not a perfect cube.

So, we divide 8192 by 2 to make its quotient a perfect cube.

8192/2 = 4096

4096 = 2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2 = 23×23×23×23

Cube root of 4096 = ∛4096 = ∛ (23×23×23×23) = 2×2×2×2 = 16

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

Solution:

Let us consider the ratio 1:2:3 as x, 2x and 3x

According to the question,

X3 + (2x) 3 + (3x) 3 = 98784

x3 + 8x3 + 27x3 = 98784

36x3 = 98784

x3 = 98784/36

= 2744

x = ∛2744 = ∛ (2×2×2×7×7×7) = 2×7 = 14

So, the numbers are,

x = 14

2x = 2 × 14 = 28

3x = 3 × 14 = 42

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

Solution:

Volume of a cubical box is 474.552 cubic metres

V = 83,

Let ‘S’ be the side of the cube

83 = 474.552 cubic metres

8 = ∛474.552

= ∛ (474552/1000)

Let us factorise 474552 into prime factors, we get:

474552 = 2×2×2×3×3×3×13×13×13

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

474552 = (2×2×2) × (3×3×3) × (13×13×13)

Now, ∛474.552 = ∛ ((2×2×2) × (3×3×3) × (13×13×13))

= 2×3×13

= 78

Also,

∛1000 = ∛ (10×10×10)

8a3+27 a3+64 a3 = 0.334125

99a3 = 0.334125

a3 = 334125/1000000×99

= 3375/1000000

a = ∛ (3375/1000000)

= ∛((15×15×15)/ 100×100×100)

By using cube root table,

∛670 = 8.750

∛680 = 8.794

For the difference (680-670) which is 10.
