Let’s solve LHS,

 ∛(125 × 27) = ∛(5 × 5 × 5 × 3 × 3 × 3

= 5 × 3

So missing value in RHS is 5

(ii) ∛(8 × …) = 8

Let’s solve LHS,

 ∛(8 × …) = ∛8 × 8 × 8 = 8

So missing value in LHS is 8

(iii) ∛1728 = 4 × …

Let’s solve LHS,

 ∛1728 = ∛2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3 

= 2 × 2 × 3 = 4 × 3

So missing value in RHS is 3

(iv) ∛480 = ∛3×2× ∛..

Let’s solve LHS,

 ∛480 = ∛2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 = 2 × ∛3 × ∛2× 2 × 5 

= 2 × ∛3 × ∛20

So missing value in RHS is 20



(v) ∛… = ∛7 × ∛8

Let’s solve RHS,

∛7 × ∛8 = ∛(7 × 8) = ∛56

So missing value in LHS is 56

(vi) ∛..= ∛4 × ∛5 × ∛6

Let’s solve RHS,

∛4 × ∛5 × ∛6 = ∛(4 × 5 × 6) = ∛120

So missing value in LHS is 120

(vii) ∛(27/125) = …/5

Let’s solve LHS,

∛(27/125)= ∛(3 × 3 × 3)/(5 × 5 × 5) = 3/5 

So missing value in RHS is 3

(viii) ∛(729/1331) = 9/…

Let’s solve LHS,

∛(729/1331)= ∛(9 × 9 × 9)/(11 × 11 × 11) = 9/11 

So missing value in RHS is 11

(ix) ∛(512/…) = 8/13

Let’s solve RHS,

Taking cube and cube root of 8/13 at the same time

So, ∛(8/13)3 =  (8 × 8 × 8)/(13 × 13 × 13) = ∛512/2197



So missing value in LHS is 2197

Question 10. The volume of a cubical box is 474. 552 cubic meters. Find the length of each side of the box.

Solution:

Let a be the length of each side of the box

The volume of cubical box = 474.552 m3

As, we know volume of cube = (side)3 

So, a3 = 474552/1000

a = 474552/1000 

Solving the cube root of 474552/1000

= ∛(2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 13 × 13 × 13)/(10 × 10 × 10)

= 2 × 3 × 13/10 = 7.8 m

Hence, the length of each side of the box is 7.8 m

Question 11. Three numbers are to one another 2:3:4. The sum of their cubes is 0.334125. Find the numbers

Solution:

Let the three numbers be 2a, 3a, and 4a

It is given that the sum of their cubes is 0.334125

So, 2a3 + 3a3 + 4a3 = 334125/1000000

99a3 = 334125/1000000 or a = 334125/(1000000 × 99)

= 3375/1000000 = ∛15 × 15 × 15/10 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 10

= 15/100 = 0.15

So, first number = 2a = 2 × 0.15 = 0.3

The second number = 3a = 3 × 0.15 = 0.45



The third number = 4a = 4 × 0.15 = 0.6

Hence, the numbers are 0.3, 0.45, and 0.6

Question 12. Find the side of a cube whose volume is 24389/216m3.

Solution:

Let a be the length of each side of the cube

The volume of cube = 24389/216 m3

As, we know volume of cube = (side)3 

So, a3 = 24389/216

a = 24389/216 

Solving the cube root of 24389/216

= ∛(29 × 29 × 29)/(2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3)

= 29/2 × 3 = 29/6 = 4.84 m

Hence, the length of each side of the cube is 4.84 m

Question 13. Evaluate:

(i) ∛36 × ∛384

(ii) ∛96 × ∛144

(iii) ∛100 × ∛270

= ∛(36 × 384) = ∛(2 × 2 × 3 × 3) × (2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3)  

= ∛23 × 23 × 23 × 33

= 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 = 24

Hence, ∛36 × ∛384 = 24

(ii) ∛96 × ∛144

We know that, ∛a × ∛b = ∛ab

= ∛(96 × 144) = ∛(2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3) × (2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3)  

= ∛23 × 23 × 23 × 33

= 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 = 24

Hence, ∛96 × ∛144 = 24

(iii) ∛100 × ∛270

We know that, ∛a × ∛b = ∛ab

= ∛(100 × 270) = 27000

= ∛3 × 3 × 3 × 10 × 10 × 10 = 3 × 10 = 30

Hence, ∛100 × ∛270 = 30



(iv) ∛121 × ∛297

We know that, ∛a × ∛b = ∛ab

= ∛(121 × 297) = ∛(11 × 11) × (3 × 3 × 3 × 11)  

= ∛33 × 113 

= 3 × 11 = 33

Hence, ∛121 × ∛297 = 33

= 3 × 5 × 9 = 135

Hence, cube root of 2460375 is 135

(ii) 20346417 = 9261 × 2197  

Cube root of 20346417 will be written as,

20346417 = 9261 × 2197  

= ∛(3 × 3 × 3 × 7 × 7 × 7) × (13 × 13 × 13)

= ∛33 × 73 × 133

= 3 × 7 × 13 = 273

Hence, cube root of 20346417 is 273

(iii) 210644875 = 42875 × 4913 

Cube root of 210644875 will be written as,
