The first step in finding the cube root of any number between 1 and 100, you will have to learn a cube of numbers from 1 to 12.
 Number Cube 13 1 23 8 33 27 43 64 53 125 63 216 73 343 83 512 93 729 103 1000 113 1331 123 1728

Note: The unit place on cubing 1, 4, 5, 6, 9 and 0 is the same but the unit place on cubing 2, 3, 7, 8 are not same.

Cube of 2’s unit place is 8, and a cube of 8’s unit place is 2.

Similarly, the cube of 3’s unit place is 7; and a cube of 7’s unit place is 3.

One can easily find the cube root of any number between 13 and 100.

##### –  Find the cube root of 2197.

Step 1: Take last 3 digits aside i.e. 197.

Step 2: Now, you can see the last digit of number 197 is ‘7’ which a unit place digit of 33. It means the number (cube root of 2197) contains ‘3’ in its unit place.

Step 3: Next, you have to find the tens place digit. For this, take the remaining value i.e. ‘2’ of number 2197.

Step 4: You can see that ‘2’ (of number 2197) is larger than 1 (a cube of 1).

Step 5: Finally, you know the cube root of 2197 by combining the steps 2 and 4, which gives you the answer i.e. 13

##### –  Find the cube root of 262144.

Step 1: Take last 3 digits aside i.e. 144.

Step 2: Now, you can see the last digit of number 144 is ‘4’ which a unit place digit of 43. It means the number (cube root of 262144)contains ‘4’ in its unit place.

Step 3: Next, you have to find the tens place digit. For this, take the remaining value i.e. ‘262’ of number 262144.

Step 4: You can see that ‘262’ (of number 262144) is larger than 216 (a cube of 6).

Step 5: Finally, you know the cube root of 262144 by combining the steps 2 and 4, which gives you the answer i.e. 64
