How to Calculate the Value of the Cube Root of 20?
Cube Root of 20 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 = 20
Let us assume x as 2
[∵ 2^{3} = 8 and 8 is the nearest perfect cube that is less than 20]
⇒ x = 2
Therefore,
∛20 = 2 (2^{3} + 2 × 20)/(2 × 2^{3} + 20)) = 2.67
⇒ ∛20 ≈ 2.67
Therefore, the cube root of 20 is 2.67 approximately.
Is the Cube Root of 20 Irrational?
Yes, because ∛20 = ∛(2 × 2 × 5) and it cannot be expressed in the form of p/q where q ≠ 0. Therefore, the value of the cube root of 20 is an irrational number.

Cube Root of 20 Solved Examples

Example 1: The volume of a spherical ball is 20π in^{3}. What is the radius of this ball?
Solution:
Volume of the spherical ball = 20π in^{3}
= 4/3 × π × R^{3}
⇒ R^{3} = 3/4 × 20
⇒ R = ∛(3/4 × 20) = ∛(3/4) × ∛20 = 0.90856 × 2.71442 (∵ ∛(3/4) = 0.90856 and ∛20 = 2.71442)
⇒ R = 2.46621 in^{3} 
Example 2: What is the value of ∛20 ÷ ∛(20)?
Solution:
The cube root of 20 is equal to the negative of the cube root of 20.
⇒ ∛20 = ∛20
Therefore,
⇒ ∛20/∛(20) = ∛20/(∛20) = 1 
Example 3: Given the volume of a cube is 20 in^{3}. Find the length of the side of the cube.
Solution:
Volume of the Cube = 20 in^{3} = a^{3}
⇒ a^{3} = 20
Cube rooting on both sides,
⇒ a = ∛20 in
Since the cube root of 20 is 2.71, therefore, the length of the side of the cube is 2.71 in.
FAQs on Cube Root of 20
What is the Value of the Cube Root of 20?
We can express 20 as 2 × 2 × 5 i.e. ∛20 = ∛(2 × 2 × 5) = 2.71442. Therefore, the value of the cube root of 20 is 2.71442.
What is the Cube Root of 20?
The cube root of 20 is equal to the negative of the cube root of 20. Therefore, ∛20 = (∛20) = (2.714) = 2.714.
What is the Value of 15 Plus 18 Cube Root 20?
The value of ∛20 is 2.714. So, 15 + 18 × ∛20 = 15 + 18 × 2.714 = 63.852. Hence, the value of 15 plus 18 cube root 20 is 63.852.
Is 20 a Perfect Cube?
The number 20 on prime factorization gives 2 × 2 × 5. Here, the prime factor 2 is not in the power of 3. Therefore the cube root of 20 is irrational, hence 20 is not a perfect cube.
Why is the Value of the Cube Root of 20 Irrational?
The value of the cube root of 20 cannot be expressed in the form of p/q where q ≠ 0. Therefore, the number ∛20 is irrational.
What is the Cube of the Cube Root of 20?
The cube of the cube root of 20 is the number 20 itself i.e. (∛20)^{3} = (20^{1/3})^{3} = 20.
