A cube root of a number is a value that, when multiplied by itself twice, gives the original number. In other words, it's the reverse operation of cubing a number. For any real number x, the cube root of x is the number y such that y³ = x.

Calculating a cube root can be done through various methods:

- Using a calculator with a cube root function
- Applying the exponent rule: ∛x = x^(1/3)
- Using prime factorization for perfect cubes
- Employing numerical methods like Newton's method for approximation

The formula for the cube root of a number x is:

\[ y = \sqrt[3]{x} \]

Which is equivalent to:

\[ y^3 = x \]

Where x is the number we're finding the cube root of, and y is the result.

- Identify the number x for which you want to calculate the cube root
- If x is a perfect cube, find the number that, when cubed, equals x
- If x is not a perfect cube, use a calculator or computational method to find ∛x
- For complex numbers, there are three cube roots. Find all three if necessary
- Verify your result by cubing it, which should equal the original number x

Let's calculate the cube root of 27:

- We want to find y such that y³ = 27
- We recognize that 3 × 3 × 3 = 27
- Therefore, ∛27 = 3
- To verify: 3³ = 3 × 3 × 3 = 27, which confirms our result

Thus, the cube root of 27 is 3.

This cube has a volume of 27. Each side of the cube has a length of 3, which is the cube root of 27.
