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 at the following example to understand this.
Let's calculate the value of ∛-64
We know that,
-64 = (-4) × (-4) × (-4)
We can write -64 as the product of 3 negative 4s.
∛-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.
