Arithmetic

- Looking at the two procedures to find the cube root of two and three digit numbers in previous post (Cube roots Part 1). We can follow the following procedure to find the cube root of any number. This method is called the division method.

- Group the digits from right into triples. If the number has a decimal part, make triples to both sides of decimal. If the decimal part has one or two digit left, add one or two zero correspondingly to it.

- Find a number whose cube is less than or equal to the first triple or the remaining digits after forming triple. Take it as divisor and quotient.

- Subtract the cube of divisor from the first triple or the remaining digits after forming triples.

- Bring down the next triple to the right of the remainder. This is the new dividend.

- Take the thrice of quotient below on the left column of the new dividend.

- The new divisor is obtained by annexing the thrice of the quotient by a digit. The digit is such that [(10×(the thrice of quotient)×(quotient annexed by new digit)×(new digit)) + (new digit)
^{3}] is less than or equal to the new dividend.

- Annex the new digit to the top quotient.

- Subtract the number obtained by [(10×(the thrice of quotient)×(quotient annexed by new digit)×(new digit)) + (new digit)
^{3}] from the dividend.

- Repeat the process.

- In case of taking quotient to decimal, add zeros to right of remainder in triples.

Cube

- When we multiply a variable with itself twice it is called a cube of the variable. The cube of a is a
^{3}.

- (a + b)
^{3} = a^{3} + 3a^{2}b + 3ab^{2} + b^{3}

- (a + b + c)
^{3} = a^{3} + b^{3} + c^{3} + 3a^{2}b + 3ab^{2} + 3a^{2}c + 3ac^{2} + 3b^{2}c + 3bc^{2} + 6abc

- We can write a two digit number as (10a + b).

The cube of this number is (10a + b)^{3} = 1000a^{3} + 100×3a^{2}b + 10×3ab^{2} + b^{3}.

It can be written as (a^{3})(3a^{2}b)(3ab^{2})(b^{3}).

Cube Root

- The number which when multiplied by itself twice gives the cube of the number, the number is called the cube root of the cube. The cube root of a
^{3} is a.

- The cube root of a
^{3} + 3a^{2}b + 3ab^{2} + b^{3} is (a+b).

- The cube root of a
^{3} + b^{3} + c^{3} + 3a^{2}b + 3ab^{2} + 3a^{2}c + 3ac^{2} + 3b^{2}c + 3bc^{2} + 6abc is (a + b + c).

- We can represent a two digit number as (10a + b)or(a)(b). The cube of it is (1000a
^{3} + 100×3a^{2}b + 10×3ab^{2} + b^{3}) or (a^{3})(3a^{2}b)(3ab^{2})(b^{3}). The figure describes how to find the cube root of a number whose cube root is a two digit number.

- Take cube of a, (a
^{3}) and subtract it from the number left after making group of three from right.
- Bring (3a) below.
- Suffix (b) to it.

- Main step: Multiply ten times of (3a) in column 1 row 2 ((3a) from (3a)(b)) leaving the new digit (b) to the number (a)(b) in the column 2 row 1 and new digit (b) to get [(3a
^{2}b)(3ab^{2})(0)], add the cube of new number (b) to it to get (3a^{2}b)(3ab^{2})(b^{3}). The expression looks like this [(3a)(0) ×(a)(b)×(b) + (b^{3})].
