How to Find the Cubed Root of a Number

By Herman Cruz

To cube a number, you must multiply it three times. For instance, 2 cubed would be the result of multiplying 2 * 2 * 2, which totals 8. On the other hand, the cubed root of a number works the opposite way. For example, if 2 cubed is 8, the cube root of 8 is 2 because when you multiply the number 2 three times, it equals 8. Perfect cubes are the cubes of whole numbers such as 8, 27 and 64 that have an cube root such that is also a whole number. Surds are numbers that don't have an exact cubed root, but certain sites can help you find the cubed root for surds swiftly.
