# Which calculation can be used to find the value of y in the equation y^{3} = 27?

The given question is based on cubes and cube roots.

## Answer: The value of y in the equation y^{3} = 27 is y = 3.

Let us find the solution of the equation y^{3} = 27

**Explanation:**

The cube for the number (x) is represented as x^{3} or x-cubed

- cube of number = x
^{3} - cube root of a number = ∛x

y^{3} = 27

y = ∛27 = ∛(3 x 3 x 3) = ∛[(3)^{3}] = [3]^{3/3} = 3^{1 }= 3

y = 3.
