# Can you find the cube root of a negative number

## Question: Can you find the cube root of a negative number?

The cube root of a number is a value that is obtained when the number is multiplied three times with itself.

## Answer: Yes, the cube root of a negative number can be calculated.

Let's look into an example to understand this.

## Explanation:

Let's calculate the value of ∛-64

We know that,

-64 = (-4) × (-4) × (-4)

We can write -64 as the product of 3 negative 4's.

Hence,

∛-64 = -4

### Thus, it is possible to find the cube root of negative numbers because the product of three negative values gives us a negative result.
