# How does finding the square root of a number compared to finding the cube root of a number? Use the number 64 in your explanation.

**Solution:**

The square root of a number is that number which when multiplied by itself two times gives us that number.

**Example:**

Let us use the square root of 64.

√64 = x , so that (x)(x) = 64

We know that, (8)(8) = 64

∴ √64 = 8

The cube root of a number is that number which when multiplied by itself three times gives us that number.

**Example: **

Let us use the square root of 64

ā64 = x , so that (x)(x)(x) = 64 ,

We know that, 4 x 4 x 4 = 64

∴ ā64 = 4

## How does finding the square root of a number compared to finding the cube root of a number? Use the number 64 in your explanation.

**Summary:**

**The square root** of a number is a value, which on multiplication by itself gives the original number and the **Cube root** of a number is a value which when multiplied by itself thrice produces the original value.
