Worksheet Overview

When we find the cube of an algebraic term, we simply multiply it by itself and then by itself again.

Thus the cube of 2a4 is  


2a4 x 2a4 x 2a4 = 8a12


The reverse of cubing is finding the cube root.


So  38a12 = 2a4


This means that we find the cube root of the number and divide the index by 3.


Let's try some questions.
