In this article we are going to discuss

**cube numbers**.

A couple of lines down you can find our calculator which can cube any real number.

The terms

**cube number**and

**perfect cube**are synonym.

It’s called

*perfect*cube because the number is the cube of a whole number.

## Cube Numbers Definition

A perfect cube is the product of some integer with itself two times.Therefore, it is expressed as n

^{3}= n × n × n;

**n**is a

**whole number**.

As you can see, a cube number is an

**exponentiation**involving the

**base n**and the

**exponent**3, sometimes written as n^3.

In other words, it means

**n to the power of 3**.

It follows from that that n can be positive or negative (if you cube a negative number the result will be a negative), but usually the meaning is n > 0.

If n represents the length of a side, then n^3 expresses the volume of the shape of a cube with side length n.

This answers the question

*how do you cube a number*?

### Cube Numbers Formula

n^{3}= n × n

^{2}

For n

^{2}you may use

Next, let’s look at some examples.

## Cube Numbers Examples

- Example 1 – 3: 3
^{3}= 3 × 3 × 3 = 27. - Example 2 – 4: 4
^{3}= 4 × 4 × 4 = 64. - Example 3 – 10: 10
^{3}= 10 × 10 × 10 = 1000.

^{3}is the cube number, then n is the principal cube root.

- Example 4: The cube root of 1728 (12 × 12 × 12 = 12
^{3}=) is 12.

If the cube root is a natural number (has no decimal places and is non-negative), then the number is indeed a cube number.

- Example 5: Is 224 a cube number? No, ∛224 = 6.0731779437 (has decimals).
- Example 6: Is 216 a cube number? Yes, ∛216 = 6 (has no decimals).
- Example 7: If the cube of a number is y, then what is the original number x? By definition, the product y = x
^{3}, so x = ∛y.

## Frequently Asked Questions

### What are the first 10 cube numbers?

The first 10 cube numbers are 0, 1, 8, 27, 64, 125, 216, 343, 512, 729.

### What is the formula of the cube?

The formula of a cube is n × n × n; n = side.

### Is 400 a perfect cube?

∛400 = 7.3680629972 has decimals, so it’s not a perfect cube. However, ∛400 = 20 x 20, which means it’s a perfect square.

### How do you tell if a number is a perfect cube?

If the cube root of the number is a whole number, then the number is a perfect cube.

### What does six cubed mean?

Six cubed means 6

## Cube Numbers Calculator

Here we would like to tell you that our tool at the top of this page works both ways; you can either fill in the top or the bottom input field.Our app works with all real numbers, and you don’t need to press a button unless you want to go back to square one.

You may use the down and up arrows (called spinners) to decrease and increase the input value.

Frequently calculated terms on our site include, for instance: We now provide you with some additional information regarding the shape, or which might be useful to you to come up with n^3.

## Additional Information

A cube is a three-dimensional object: In geometry, it is the only regular hexahedron; it has 6 faces, 8 vertices and 12 edges.n × n × n = length × width × height.

This is the difference between two perfect cubes:

(n + 1)

^{3}− n

^{3}= 3(n + 1)n + 1 ⇔ n

^{3}− (n − 1)

^{3}= 3(n − 1)n + 1.

The following symmetry applies: (−n)

^{3}= −(n

^{3}).

Note that you can always employ the search form located in the menu and in the sidebar of this site to locate information about a particular term.

Or simply consult our

## Bottom Line

A**cube number**

**n**means

^{3}**n × n × n**, n is an

**integer**and × is the multiplication symbol.

The exponentiation form n

^{3}or n^3 is mostly used to express a cube.

**If the third root of a cubed number has no decimal places, then the cubed number is a cube number!**
