Explanation:

 

 

Cube root

 

In mathematics, a cube root of a number, denoted  or x1/3, is a number a such that a3 = x. (Our solved example in mathguru.com uses this concept)

All real numbers have exactly one real cube root and a pair of complex conjugate roots, and all nonzero complex numbers have three distinct complex cube roots. For example, the real cube root of 8 is 2, because 23 = 8.

Prime factor

 

In number theory, the prime factors of a positive integer are the prime numbers that divide that integer exactly, without leaving a remainder. The process of finding these numbers is called integer factorization, or prime factorization.

To shorten prime factorization, numbers are often expressed in powers, so
