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.
