What is the `root(3)(216)`?
The answer is "`6`".
Cube root is a form of root. In roots, we learned to perform prime factorization to find the root.
Finding Cube Roots : To find cube root of a number, express the number in prime factors and group the factors.
eg: `root(3)(1000)` `=root(3)(2xx2xx2xx5xx5xx5)` `=2xx5 =10`
Note: This method is suitable for finding cube roots resulting in integers.
