# Tricks to find Cube Root: Vedic Maths

Finding cube root in a quick manner can be very important for the fast Calculations in any competitive exam.

Let us see how to find the cube root of a number?

The **cube root** of a number is another number that, when multiplied three times, makes the first number.

**Now**

Let us find the cube root of **39304** through a **shortcut method** involving four steps:

**STEP 1**:

To find the **unit place of the cube root** always remember the following points:

• If the last digit of a cube root is 8 then the unit digit will be 2.

• If the last digit of a cube root is 2 then the unit digit will be 8.

• If the last digit of a cube root is 3 then the unit digit will be 7.

• If the last digit of a cube root is 7 then the unit digit will be 3.

• If the last digit of a cube root is other than 2, 3, 7 and 8 then put the same number as the unit digit.

Therefore, the unit digit will be 4.

**STEP 2**:

Now, strike off the **last 3 digits** of the given number.

39**304**

**STEP 3**:

Now, find the **nearest cube** of the first 2 digit from the left, i.e., 39.

The nearest cube is 27.

**STEP 4**:

Now, 3 is the cube root of 27.

Therefore, the **ten’s place digit will be 3.**

So, the answer will be 34.

**ANOTHER EXAMPLE**

Let us now find the cube root of **238328 **with the same method

• The unit digit will be 2.

• Now, strike off the last 3 digits of the given number.

238**328**

• Now, find the nearest cube of the first 3 digit from the left, i.e., 238.

The nearest cube is 216.

• Now, 6 is the cube root of 216.

Therefore, the ten’s place digit will be 6.

• So, the answer will be 62.
