# Cube Root

A number m is the cube root of a number n
if n = m3.
In other words, the cube-root of a number n is that number whose cube gives n.
The cube-root of a number is denoted by ∛n. ∛n is also called a radical, n is called the radicand and 3 is called the index of the radical.

8 = 23 ∴ ∛8 = 2 ;

27 = 33 ∴ ∛27 = 3 ;

343 = 73 ∴ ∛343 = 7 ;

-125 = (-5)3 ∴ ∛(-125) = -5 ;

(64/125) = (4/5)3 ∴ ∛(64/125) = 4/5 ;

(216) = 63 ∴ ∛216 = 6 ;

(1000) = 103 ∴ ∛1000 = 10 ;

Remark : The symbol ∛ for the cube-root is very much similar to the symbol of square root. The only difference is that whereas in the case of square root, we use the symbol '√' for the cube-root we use the same symbol √ but a 3 which indicates that we are taking cube-root.
