Question 1
Find the cube roots by prime factorization method
(i) 15625
(ii) 2744
(iii) 125/2197
(iv) 5832
(v) 64000
(vi) 10648
(vii) 1331
(viii) 1728

(i) $15625 = 5 \times 5 \times 5 \times 5 \times 5 \times 5$
$\sqrt{15625} =5$
(ii) $2744= 2^3 \times 7^3$
$\sqrt{2744} =2 \times 7=14$
(iii) $125/2197= (5 x 5 x 5) / (13 \times 13 \times 13)$
$\sqrt{125/2197} =5 /13$
(iv) 5832= 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3
$\sqrt{5832} =2 \times 3 \times 3=18$
(v)64000 = 4 x 4 x 4 x 10 x 10 x 10
$\sqrt{64000} =4 \times 10 =40$
(vi) 10648= 2 x 2 x 2 x 11 x 11 x 11
$\sqrt{10648} =2 \times 11 =22$
(vii) 1331=11 x 11 x 11
$\sqrt{1331} =11$
(viii) 1728= 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3
$\sqrt{1728} =12$

Question 2
Find the cubes of these numbers.
(i) .4
(ii) 8
(iii)15
(iv).02
(v) 1.1
(vi).011

(i) $.4^3 = .046$
(ii) $8^3= 512$
(iii) $15^3=3375$
(iv) $.02^3= .000008$
(v)$1.1^3= 1.331$
(vi)$.011^3= .000001331$

Question 3
Is 256 a perfect cube? If not, find the smallest number by which it should be divided to get a perfect cube.

$256= 2^8= 2^3 \times 2^3 \times 2^2$
Therefore it is not a perfect cube
So, it must be divided by 4 to become perfect cube

Question 4
if $6^{n+2}=1296$, then $\sqrt{n + 727}$ is

$6^{n+2}=1296$
$6^{n+2}=6^4$
$n+2=4$ or $n=2$
Now $\sqrt{n + 727}= \sqrt{2 + 727}=\sqrt{729}=9$

Question 5
Three numbers are in the ratio 1:2:3 and the sum of their cubes is 4500. Find the numbers.

Let the number be x,2x,3x
Now
$x^3 + 8x^3 + 27x^3=4500$
$36x^3=4500$ or $x^3=125$
$x=5$
So numbers are 5,10,15

Question 6
If $\sqrt{157464}=54$, then find the value
$\sqrt{157.464}+ \sqrt{.157464}+ \sqrt{.000157464}$

$\sqrt{157.464}+ \sqrt{.157464}+ \sqrt{.000157464}=5.4 + .54 + .054=5.994$
