3. You are told that 1,331 is a perfect cube. Can you guess without factorisation what is its cube root? Similarly, guess the cube roots of 4913, 12167, 32768.

Solution:

(i)According to given question:

By grouping the digits 1,331,

we get 1 and 331

We know that, if the unit digit of cube is 1, then the unit digit of cube root is 1.

So, We get 1 as unit digit of the cube root of 1331.

Here cube of 1 matches with the number of second group.

Then, The ten’s digit of our cube root is taken as the unit place of smallest number.

As we know that, the unit digit of the cube of a number having digit as unit place 1 is 1.

Hence, ∛1331 = 11

(ii) Now, for 4,913

By grouping the digits of 4,913,

we get 4 and 913

We know that, if the unit digit of cube is 3, then unit digit of cube root is 7.

So, we get 7 as unit digit of the cube root of 4913.

We know 13 = 1 and 23 = 8,

So, 1 > 4 > 8.

Now, 1 is taken as ten digit of cube root.

Hence, ∛4913 = 17

(iii) For 12,167

By grouping the digits of 12,167,

we get 12 and 167.

We know that, if the unit digit of cube is 7, then unit digit of cube root is 3.

So, 3 is the unit digit of the cube root of 12167

We know 23 = 8 and 33 = 27

So, 8 > 12 > 27.

Thus, 2 is taken as ten digit of cube root.

Hence, ∛12167= 23

(iv) For 32,768

By grouping the digits of 32,768,

we get 32 and 768.

We know that, if the unit digit of cube is 8, then unit digit of cube root is 2.

So, 2 is the unit digit of the cube root of 32768.

We know 33 = 27 and 43 = 64

So, 27 > 32 > 64.

Thus, 3 is taken as ten digit of cube root.

Hence, ∛32768= 32
