Definition of cube root of rational numbers : If x and a are two rational numbers such that x3 = a then we say that x is the cube root of a and we write
∛a = x

We know that,
(3/4)3 = 27/64 ⇒ ∛(27/64) = 3/4

(-4/11)3 = -64/1331 ⇒ ∛(-64/1331) = -4/11

So in order to find the cube-root of rational-numbers we use the following :
For any rational number a/b, we have

∛(a/b) = (∛a)/(∛b)

Examples :

1) ∛(27/8)

Solution :

∛(27/8) = (∛27)/(∛8)

= (∛3 x 3 x 3)/(∛2 x 2 x 2 )

∛(27/8) = 3/2

2) ∛(-64/125)

Solution :

∛(-64/125) = (∛-64)/(∛125)

= (∛-4 x -4 x -4)/(∛5 x 5 x 5 )

∛(-64/125) = -4/5
________________________________________________________________
3) ∛(1.331)

Solution :

∛(1.331) = ∛(1331/1000)

∛(1331/1000) = (∛1331)/(∛1000)

= (∛11 x 11 x 11)/(∛10 x 10 x 10 )

∛(1.331) = 11/10

∛(1.331) = 1.1
________________________________________________________________
4) ∛(0.008)

Solution :

∛(0.008) = ∛(8/1000)

∛(8/1000) = (∛8)/(∛1000)

= (∛2 x 2 x 2)/(∛10 x 10 x 10 )

∛(0.008) = 2/10

∛(0.008)= 0.2
________________________________________________________________
5)∛(0.125)

Solution :

∛(0.125) = ∛(125/1000)

∛(125/1000) = (∛125)/(∛1000)

= (∛5 x 5 x 5)/(∛10 x 10 x 10 )

∛(0.125) = 5/10

∛(0.125)= 0.5
________________________________________________________________
6)∛(216/343)

Solution :

∛(216/343) = (∛216)/(∛343)

= (∛6 x 6 x 6)/(∛7 x 7 x 7 )

∛(216/343) = 6/7
________________________________________________________________
7)∛(1000/8)

Solution :

∛(1000/8) = (∛1000)/(∛8)

= (∛10 x 10 x 10)/(∛2 x 2 x 2 )

∛(1000/8) = 10/8

∛(1000/8)= 5/4
