Which of the following is Hardy-Ramanujan Number ?

Solution:
This story is very famous among mathematicians. 1729 is sometimes called the “Hardy-Ramanujan number”.
There are two ways to say that 1729 is the sum of two cubes. 1x1x1=1; 12x12x12=1728. So 1+1728=1729 But also: 9x9x9=729; 10x10x10=1000. So 729+1000=1729 There are other numbers that can be shown to be the sum of two cubes in more than one way, but 1729 is the smallest of them.
Ramanujan did not actually discover this fact. It was known in 1657 by a Frenchmathematician Bernard Franicle de Bessy.

But it got famous after the ramanujans above conversation.

So it's famously known as Ramanujan Number.

QUESTION: 8

By which smallest natural number 392 must be multiplied so as to make the product a perfect cube ?

Solution: 392 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 7 × 7
Hence the number should be multiplied by 7 to make it a perfect cube.

QUESTION: 9

The smallest natural number by which 243 must be multiplied to make the product a perfect cube  is __________.

Solution:
QUESTION: 10

The smallest natural number by which 704 must be divided to obtain a perfect cube is

Solution:
QUESTION: 11

The smallest natural number by which 135 must be divided to obtain a perfect cube is

Solution:

we have 135 =  3 x 3 x 3 x 5 Grouping the prime factors of 135 into triples, we are left over with 5.
∴  135 is not a perfect cube
Now, divided by5 = [ 3 x 3 x 3 x 5] divided by5
or  27 = 3 x 3 x 3
i.e. 27 is a perfect cube.
Thus, the required smallest number is 5

QUESTION: 12

Which of the following is not a perfect cube ?

Solution:
QUESTION: 13

Solution:
QUESTION: 16

What will be the unit digit of the cube of a number ending with 6 ?

Solution:
QUESTION: 17

A cuboid has dimensions 5cm, 2cm, 5cm. How many such cuboid will be needed to form a cube ?

Solution:

Given, sides of a cuboid are 5cm, 2cm and 5cm
Volume of cuboid =5*2*5 = 50 cm3
Let the side of the cube formed with
minimum number of cuboids = x
Hence volume of the cube = x3
Number of cuboids required = n
Hence n*50 = x3
Now, n*50 must be perfect cube
n*50 = n*2*5*5
So, minimum value of n = 2*2*5 = 20
Hence, the number of cuboid will be
needed to form a cube is 20

QUESTION: 18

How many cuboids of dimensions 15cm, 30cm,15cm will be needed to form a cube ?

Solution:
Given cuboids of dimensions 15cm, 30cm ,15cm

LCM(15, 30, 15) = 30

Since 15*2 = 30

30*1 = 30

and  15*2  = 30  {since a cube has all the dimensions are same}

So, the number of cuboids required to form a cube = 2*1*2 = 4

So, by using 4 cuboids, we can form a cube having side 30 cm each.
QUESTION: 19

Solution:
QUESTION: 26

If the volume of a cube is 125 cm3 then what would be the length of its side?

Solution:
The length of each edge is 5ft
Explanation:
If the edge of a cube is marked as a, then the volume can be calculated as V= a^3, so here given the volume V
we can write, that:a = 3√V = 3√125 = 5
QUESTION: 27

QUESTION: 30

What will be the unit digit of the cube root of a number ends with 7?

Solution:
QUESTION: 31

9 is the cube root of  __________.

Solution:

9 is the cube root of  729 because 9 x 9 x 9 = 729

So option B is correct answer.

QUESTION: 32

The number of digits in the cube root of a 6-digit number is _______.

Solution:

As 100= 1000000 which is the smallest 3 digit number. So it’s only 2 digit number which is the cube root of a 6 digit number

QUESTION: 33

How many digits will be there in the cube root of 46656 ?

Solution:
QUESTION: 34

How many digits will be there in the cube root of 512 ?

Solution:
QUESTION: 35

What will be the unit digit of ∛15625

Solution:

If we multiply 5 three times we receive 125 where 5 is at the one’s place. So cube which has 5 at one’s place will have a root which have 5 at one’s place

QUESTION: 36

How many zeros will be there in the cube root of 27000?

Solution:
QUESTION: 37

How many zeros will be there in the cube root of 800?

Solution:

Since in cubes the zeros become triple ,for instance 10*10*10=1000, a number with two zeros does not have a cube root.

QUESTION: 38

If 7= 343, then ∛343 = _________.

Solution:
QUESTION: 39

If 8= 512, then ∛512 = _______

Solution:

8*8*8 =512

QUESTION: 40

What will be the unit digit of ∛216

Solution:
We can find it by Prime Factorization method
³√216 = 2×2×2×3×3×3
= 2 and 3 are making triplets i.e. 2 and 3
= 2×3 = 6 Thus, we can say that 6 i.e option 'B' is correct.
