Firstly let us find the prime factors of 243
243 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 33 × 32
Hence, to make it a perfect cube we have to divide it by 9.
22. By taking three different, values of n verify the truth of the following statements:
(i) If n is even, then n3 is also even.
(ii) If n is odd, then n3 is also odd.
(ii) If n leaves remainder 1 when divided by 3, then n3 also leaves 1 as remainder when divided by 3.
(iv) If a natural number n is of the form 3p+2 then n3 also a number of the same type.
Solution:
(i) If n is even, then n3 is also even.
Let us consider three even natural numbers 2, 4, 6
So now, Cubes of 2, 4 and 6 are
23 = 8
43 = 64
63 = 216
Hence, we can see that all cubes are even in nature.
Statement is verified.
(ii) If n is odd, then n3 is also odd.
Let us consider three odd natural numbers 3, 5, 7
So now, cubes of 3, 5 and 7 are
33 = 27
53 = 125
73 = 343
Hence, we can see that all cubes are odd in nature.
Statement is verified.
(iii) If n leaves remainder 1 when divided by 3, then n3 also leaves 1 as remainder when divided by 3.
Let us consider three natural numbers of the form (3n+1) are 4, 7 and 10
So now, cube of 4, 7, 10 are
43 = 64
73 = 343
103 = 1000
We can see that if we divide these numbers by 3, we get 1 as remainder in each case.
Hence, statement is verified.
(iv) If a natural number n is of the form 3p+2 then n3 also a number of the same type.
Let us consider three natural numbers of the form (3p+2) are 5, 8 and 11
So now, cube of 5, 8 and 10 are
53 = 125
83 = 512
113 = 1331
Now, we try to write these cubes in form of (3p + 2)
125 = 3 × 41 + 2
512 = 3 × 170 + 2
1331 = 3 × 443 + 2
Hence, statement is verified.
23. Write true (T) or false (F) for the following statements:
(i) 392 is a perfect cube.
(ii) 8640 is not a perfect cube.
(iii) No cube can end with exactly two zeros.
(iv) There is no perfect cube which ends in 4.
(v) For an integer a, a3 is always greater than a2.
(vi) If a and b are integers such that a2>b2, then a3>b3.
(vii) If a divides b, then a3 divides b3.
(viii) If a2 ends in 9, then a3 ends in 7.
(ix) If a2 ends in an even number of zeros, then a3 ends in 25.
(x) If a2 ends in an even number of zeros, then a3 ends in an odd number of zeros.
Solution:
(i) 392 is a perfect cube.
Firstly let’s find the prime factors of 392 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 7 × 7 = 23 × 72
Hence the statement is False.
(ii) 8640 is not a perfect cube.
Prime factors of 8640 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 5 = 23 × 23 × 33 × 5
Hence the statement is True
(iii) No cube can end with exactly two zeros.
Statement is True.
Because a perfect cube always have zeros in multiple of 3.
(iv) There is no perfect cube which ends in 4.
We know 64 is a perfect cube = 4 × 4 × 4 and it ends with 4.
Hence the statement is False.
(v) For an integer a, a3 is always greater than a2.
Statement is False.
Because in case of negative integers ,
(-2)2 = 4 and (-2)3 = -8
(vi) If a and b are integers such that a2>b2, then a3>b3.
Statement is False.
In case of negative integers,
(-5)2 > (-4)2 = 25 > 16
But, (-5)3 > (-4)3 = -125 > -64 is not true.
(vii) If a divides b, then a3 divides b3.
Statement is True.
If a divides b
b/a = k, so b=ak
b3/a3 = (ak)3/a3 = a3k3/a3 = k3,
For each value of b and a its true.
(viii) If a2 ends in 9, then a3 ends in 7.
Statement is False.
Let a = 7
72 = 49 and 73 = 343
(ix) If a2 ends in an even number of zeros, then a3 ends in 25.
Statement is False.
Since, when a = 20
a2 = 202 = 400 and a3 = 8000 (a3 doesn’t end with 25)
(x) If a2 ends in an even number of zeros, then a3 ends in an odd number of zeros.
Statement is False.
Since, when a = 100
a2 = 1002 = 10000 and a3 = 1003 = 1000000 (a3 doesn’t end with odd number of zeros)

5. Find the smallest number which when multiplied with 3600 will make the product a perfect cube. Further, find the cube root of the product.
Solution:
Firstly let’s find the prime factors for 3600
3600 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 5
= 23 × 32 × 52 × 2
Since only one triples is formed and three factors remained ungrouped in triples.
The given number 3600 is not a perfect cube.
To make it a perfect cube we have to multiply it by (2 × 2 × 3 × 5) = 60
3600 × 60 = 216000
Cube root of 216000 is
∛216000 = ∛ (60×60×60) = ∛ (603) = 60
∴ the smallest number which when multiplied with 3600 will make the product a perfect cube is 60 and the cube root of the product is 60.
6. Multiply 210125 by the smallest number so that the product is a perfect cube. Also, find out the cube root of the product.
Solution:
The prime factors of 210125 are
210125 = 5 × 5 × 5 × 41 × 41
Since, one triples remained incomplete, 210125 is not a perfect cube.
To make it a perfect cube we need to multiply the factors by 41, we will get 2 triples as 23 and 413.
And the product become:
210125 × 41 = 8615125
8615125 = 5 × 5 × 5 × 41 × 41 × 41
Cube root of product = ∛8615125 = ∛ (5×41) = 205
7. What is the smallest number by which 8192 must be divided so that quotient is a perfect cube? Also, find the cube root of the quotient so obtained.
Solution:
The prime factors of 8192 are
8192 = 2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2 = 23×23×23×2
Since, one triples remain incomplete, hence 8192 is not a perfect cube.
So, we divide 8192 by 2 to make its quotient a perfect cube.
8192/2 = 4096
4096 = 2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2 = 23×23×23×23
Cube root of 4096 = ∛4096 = ∛ (23×23×23×23) = 2×2×2×2 = 16
8. Three numbers are in the ratio 1:2:3. The sum of their cubes is 98784. Find the numbers.
Solution:
Let us consider the ratio 1:2:3 as x, 2x and 3x
According to the question,
X3 + (2x) 3 + (3x) 3 = 98784
x3 + 8x3 + 27x3 = 98784
36x3 = 98784
x3 = 98784/36
= 2744
x = ∛2744 = ∛ (2×2×2×7×7×7) = 2×7 = 14
So, the numbers are,
x = 14
2x = 2 × 14 = 28
3x = 3 × 14 = 42
9. The volume of a cube is 9261000 m3. Find the side of the cube.
Given, volume of cube = 9261000 m3
Let us consider the side of cube be ‘a’ metre
So, a3 = 9261000
a = ∛9261000 = ∛ (2×2×2×3×3×3×5×5×5×7×7×7) = ∛ (23×33×53×73) = 2×3×5×7 = 210
∴ the side of cube = 210 metre

To find the cube root of 5832, we shall use the method of unit digits.
Let us consider the number 5832. Where, unit digit of 5832 = 2
Unit digit in the cube root of 5832 will be 8
After striking out the units, tens and hundreds digits of 5832,
Now we left with 5 only.
We know that 1 is the Largest number whose cube is less than or equal to 5.
So, the tens digit of the cube root of 5832 is 1.
∛-5832 = -∛5832 = -18
(iii) -2744000
∛-2744000 = -∛2744000

So let’s find the prime factors for 2744000
2744000 = 2×2×2×2×2×2×5×5×5×7×7×7
Now by grouping the factors into triples of equal factors, we get,
2744000 = (2×2×2) × (2×2×2) × (5×5×5) × (7×7×7)
Since all the prime factors of 2744000 is grouped in to triples of equal factors and no factor is left over.
So now take one factor from each group and by multiplying we get,
2×2×5×7 = 140
Thereby we can say that 2744000 is a cube of 140
∴ ∛-2744000 = -∛2744000 = -140

Solution:
Volume of a cubical box is 474.552 cubic metres
V = 83,
Let ‘S’ be the side of the cube
83 = 474.552 cubic metres
8 = ∛474.552
= ∛ (474552/1000)
Let us factorise 474552 into prime factors, we get:
474552 = 2×2×2×3×3×3×13×13×13
By grouping the factors in triples of equal factors, we get:
474552 = (2×2×2) × (3×3×3) × (13×13×13)
Now, ∛474.552 = ∛ ((2×2×2) × (3×3×3) × (13×13×13))
= 2×3×13
= 78
Also,
∛1000 = ∛ (10×10×10)

Let us consider the ratio 2:3:4 be 2a, 3a, and 4a.
So according to the question:
(2a)3+ (3a)3+(4a)3 = 0.334125
8a3+27 a3+64 a3 = 0.334125
99a3 = 0.334125
a3 = 334125/1000000×99
= 3375/1000000
a = ∛ (3375/1000000)
= ∛((15×15×15)/ 100×100×100)
= 15/100
= 0.15
∴ The numbers are:
2×0.15 = 0.30
3×0.15 = 0.45
4×0.15 = 0.6

By performing factorisation we get,
= ∛(29×29×29/2×2×2×3×3×3)
= 29/(2×3)
= 29/6
∴ The length of the side is 29/6.

By using cube root table,
∛670 = 8.750
∛680 = 8.794
For the difference (680-670) which is 10.
So the difference in the values = 8.794 – 8.750 = 0.044
For the difference (673-670) which is 3.
So the difference in the values = (0.044/10) × 3 = 0.0132

From cube root table we get,
∛860 = 9.510
∛870 = 9.546
∛100 = 4.642
By using unitary method,
Difference between the values (870 – 860 = 10)
So, the difference in cube root values will be = 9.546 – 9.510 = 0.036
Difference between the values (865 – 860 = 5)
So, the difference in cube root values will be = (0.036/10) × 5 = 0.018
∛865 = 9.510 + 0.018 = 9.528
∛8.65 = ∛865/∛100
