How to Calculate the Value of the Cube Root of 15?
Cube Root of 15 by Halley's Method
Its formula is ∛a ≈ x ((x^{3} + 2a)/(2x^{3} + a))
where,
a = number whose cube root is being calculated
x = integer guess of its cube root.
Here a = 15
Let us assume x as 2
[∵ 2^{3} = 8 and 8 is the nearest perfect cube that is less than 15]
⇒ x = 2
Therefore,
∛15 = 2 (2^{3} + 2 × 15)/(2 × 2^{3} + 15)) = 2.45
⇒ ∛15 ≈ 2.45
Therefore, the cube root of 15 is 2.45 approximately.
Is the Cube Root of 15 Irrational?
Yes, because ∛15 = ∛(3 × 5) and it cannot be expressed in the form of p/q where q ≠ 0. Therefore, the value of the cube root of 15 is an irrational number.

Cube Root of 15 Solved Examples

Example 1: Find the real root of the equation x^{3} − 15 = 0.
Solution:
x^{3} − 15 = 0 i.e. x^{3} = 15
Solving for x gives us,
x = ∛15, x = ∛15 × (1 + √3i))/2 and x = ∛15 × (1  √3i))/2
where i is called the imaginary unit and is equal to √1.
Ignoring imaginary roots,
x = ∛15
Therefore, the real root of the equation x^{3} − 15 = 0 is for x = ∛15 = 2.4662. 
Example 2: The volume of a spherical ball is 15π in^{3}. What is the radius of this ball?
Solution:
Volume of the spherical ball = 15π in^{3}
= 4/3 × π × R^{3}
⇒ R^{3} = 3/4 × 15
⇒ R = ∛(3/4 × 15) = ∛(3/4) × ∛15 = 0.90856 × 2.46621 (∵ ∛(3/4) = 0.90856 and ∛15 = 2.46621)
⇒ R = 2.2407 in^{3} 
Example 3: What is the value of ∛15 ÷ ∛(15)?
Solution:
The cube root of 15 is equal to the negative of the cube root of 15.
⇒ ∛15 = ∛15
Therefore,
⇒ ∛15/∛(15) = ∛15/(∛15) = 1
FAQs on Cube Root of 15
What is the Value of the Cube Root of 15?
We can express 15 as 3 × 5 i.e. ∛15 = ∛(3 × 5) = 2.46621. Therefore, the value of the cube root of 15 is 2.46621.
What is the Cube of the Cube Root of 15?
The cube of the cube root of 15 is the number 15 itself i.e. (∛15)^{3} = (15^{1/3})^{3} = 15.
Why is the Value of the Cube Root of 15 Irrational?
The value of the cube root of 15 cannot be expressed in the form of p/q where q ≠ 0. Therefore, the number ∛15 is irrational.
How to Simplify the Cube Root of 15/216?
We know that the cube root of 15 is 2.46621 and the cube root of 216 is 6. Therefore, ∛(15/216) = (∛15)/(∛216) = 2.466/6 = 0.411.
What is the Value of 15 Plus 11 Cube Root 15?
The value of ∛15 is 2.466. So, 15 + 11 × ∛15 = 15 + 11 × 2.466 = 42.126000000000005. Hence, the value of 15 plus 11 cube root 15 is 42.126000000000005.
Is 15 a Perfect Cube?
The number 15 on prime factorization gives 3 × 5. Here, the prime factor 3 is not in the power of 3. Therefore the cube root of 15 is irrational, hence 15 is not a perfect cube.
