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.
