Properties of Cube

Some properties of cubes of natural numbers are:-

Property 1: Cubes of all even numbers are even.
Example: 6
3 = 6 x 6 x 6 = 216
6 and 216 both are even numbers.

Property 2: Cubes of all odd natural numbers are odd.
Example: 7 3 = 7 x 7 x 7 = 343
7 and 343 both are natural odd numbers.

Property 3: The sum of the cubes of first n natural numbers is equal to the square of their sum.
1
3 + 2 3 + 3 3 + … + n 3 = (1 + 2 + 3 + … + n) 2
Example: 1
3 + 2 3 + 3 3 + 4 3 = (1 + 2 + 3 + 4) 3
1 + 8 + 27 + 64 = (10)
2
100 = 100

Property 4 : Cubes of the numbers ending in digit 1, 4, 5, 6 and 9 are the numbers ending in the same digit.
