Cube by Column method

For finding the cube by column method use the following formula:-
(a + b)
3 = a 3 + 3a 2 b + 3ab 2 + b 3
In this method, first find the 2 digits of a number.

Example:
1) 32
3 , so here the two digits are 3 and 2.
2) 46
3 , two digits are 4 and 6.

Examples:-

1) Find 24
3 .
Solution: Here two digits are 2 and 4.
a = 2, and b = 4. By using the column-method:-
Column I
Column II
Column III
Column IV
a3
3 x a2 x b
3 x a x b2
b3
23 = 8
+ 5
3 x 22 x 4 = 48
+ 10
3 x 2 x 42 = 96
+ 6
43 = 64

∴ 24
3 = 13824

2) Find 42
3 .
Solution: Here two digits are 4 and 2.
a = 4, and b = 2. By using the column-method:-

Column I
Column II
Column III
Column IV
a3
3 x a2 x b
3 x a x b2
b3
43 = 64
+ 10
3 x 42 x 2 = 96
+ 4
3 x 4 x 22 = 48
+ 0
23 = 8

∴ 42
3 = 74088
