Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 6

Each prime factor appears _________ times in its cube?

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 7

Which of the following is Hardy-Ramanujan Number ?

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 7
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.

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 8

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

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 8


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

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 9

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

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 10

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

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 11

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

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 11

 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, [135]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

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 12

Which of the following is not a perfect cube ?

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 13

The expansion of a3 is ___________.

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 14

What will be the unit digit of the cube of a number ending with 2 ?

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 15

What will be the unit digit of the cube of a number ending with 4 ?

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 16

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

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 16

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 17

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

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 17

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

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 18

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

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 18
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.
Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 19

729 is the value of  _______________.

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 20

Which of the following is a perfect cube ?

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 21

What is the volume of a cube whose edge is 2cm ?

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 21
Volume of cube=2×2×2=8
Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 22

The symbol for cube root is __________.

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 23

The cube root of 512 is ________.

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 24

The value of ∛343 is-

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 25

Which of the following is true for any natural number n? for n>1

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 25

Take any natural number(except 1). This identity would hold for any natural number.
Natural numbers are 1,2,3,4,5____ upto infinity with all positive terms.

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 26

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

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 26

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 27

What will be the unit digit of the cube root of a number ends with 8?

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 28

What will be the unit digit of the cube root of a number ends with 2?

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 29

What will be the unit digit of the cube root of a number ends with 3?

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 29

for example like 343 so its cube root will be 7
because 73 will always have 3 as unit digit

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 30

For a number ending with 7, the unit digit of its cube is equal to:

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 30

If the unit digit is 7, the cube will have unit digit as 7×7×7 = 343

So, the unit digit will be 3.

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 31

9 is the cube root of  __________.

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 31

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

So option B is correct answer. 

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 32

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

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 32

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

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 33

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

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 34

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

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 35

What will be the unit digit of ∛15625

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 35

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 

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 36

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

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 37

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

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 37

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

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 38

If 7= 343, then ∛343 = _________.

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 39

If 8= 512, then ∛512 = _______

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 39

8*8*8 =512

Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 40

What will be the unit digit of ∛216

Detailed Solution for Test: Cubes And Cube Roots- 2 - Question 40
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.
