# 125 Cubed

125 cubed, 1253, is the number you get when multiplying 125 times 125 times 125. It can also be looked at as exponentiation involving the base 125 and the exponent 3. The term is usually pronounced 3rd power of hundred and twenty-five or hundred and twenty-five cubed. The cube of 125 is a perfect cube because the number is the product of the three equal integers 125. It can be written as 125 x 125 x 125 or in exponential form. Read on to learn everything about the number hundred and twenty-five cubed, including useful identities.

1253 = 1953125
125 x 125 x 125 = 1953125

The inverse operation of cubing 125 is extracting the cube root of 125, explained here. In the next section we elaborate on the cube 125, and there you can also find our calculator.

## What is 125 Cubed

A cube is a three-dimensional shape with 6 equal square faces. Hence, a cube with side length 125 has an area of 1953125.

The sum and the differences of two cubes, for example with side length 125 and 124, can be calculated with the following formulas:

1. a3 + b3 = (a + b) × (a2 – ab + b2) ⇔ a3 = (a + b) × (a2 – ab + b2) – b3
With a = 125, b = 124 and the equivalence we get:
1253 = 249 x (1252 – 125 × 124 + 1242) – 1243 = 249 x (15625 – 15500 + 15376) – 1906624 = 249 x 15501 – 1906624 = 1953125
2. a3 – b3 = (a – b) × (a2 + ab + b2) ⇔ a3 = (a – b) × (a2 + ab + b2) + b3
With a = 125, b = 124 and the equivalence we get:
1253 = (1252 + 125 × 124 + 1242) + 1243 = 15625 + 15500 + 15376 + 1906624 = 1953125

As follows from (1), 125 cubed can be calculated from 124 cubed and 125 squared using the identity:

n3 = (2 × n – 1) × (n2 -n + 1) – (n-1)3
1253 = (2 × 125 – 1) × (1252 – 125 + 1) – (124)3 = 249 × (15625 – 124) – 1906624 = 249 × 15501 – 1906624 = 1953125

Using the second formula 125 cubed can be also be computed with this identity:

n3 = (n-1)3 + 3n2 -3n + 1
1253 = 1243 + 3 × 1252 – 3 × 125 + 1 = 1906624 + 3 × 15625 – 3 × 125 + 1 = 1906624 + 46875 – 375 + 1 = 1953125
