How to Calculate the Value of the Cube Root of 144?
Cube Root of 144 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 = 144
Let us assume x as 5
[∵ 5^{3} = 125 and 125 is the nearest perfect cube that is less than 144]
⇒ x = 5
Therefore,
∛144 = 5 (5^{3} + 2 × 144)/(2 × 5^{3} + 144)) = 5.24
⇒ ∛144 ≈ 5.24
Therefore, the cube root of 144 is 5.24 approximately.
Is the Cube Root of 144 Irrational?
Yes, because ∛144 = ∛(2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3) = 2 ∛18 and it cannot be expressed in the form of p/q where q ≠ 0. Therefore, the value of the cube root of 144 is an irrational number.

Cube Root of 144 Solved Examples

Example 1: What is the value of ∛144 ÷ ∛(144)?
Solution:
The cube root of 144 is equal to the negative of the cube root of 144.
⇒ ∛144 = ∛144
Therefore,
⇒ ∛144/∛(144) = ∛144/(∛144) = 1 
Example 2: The volume of a spherical ball is 144π in^{3}. What is the radius of this ball?
Solution:
Volume of the spherical ball = 144π in^{3}
= 4/3 × π × R^{3}
⇒ R^{3} = 3/4 × 144
⇒ R = ∛(3/4 × 144) = ∛(3/4) × ∛144 = 0.90856 × 5.24148 (∵ ∛(3/4) = 0.90856 and ∛144 = 5.24148)
⇒ R = 4.7622 in^{3} 
Example 3: Find the real root of the equation x^{3} − 144 = 0.
Solution:
x^{3} − 144 = 0 i.e. x^{3} = 144
Solving for x gives us,
x = ∛144, x = ∛144 × (1 + √3i))/2 and x = ∛144 × (1  √3i))/2
where i is called the imaginary unit and is equal to √1.
Ignoring imaginary roots,
x = ∛144
Therefore, the real root of the equation x^{3} − 144 = 0 is for x = ∛144 = 5.2415.
FAQs on Cube Root of 144
What is the Value of the Cube Root of 144?
We can express 144 as 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 i.e. ∛144 = ∛(2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3) = 5.24148. Therefore, the value of the cube root of 144 is 5.24148.
Is 144 a Perfect Cube?
The number 144 on prime factorization gives 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3. Here, the prime factor 2 is not in the power of 3. Therefore the cube root of 144 is irrational, hence 144 is not a perfect cube.
Why is the Value of the Cube Root of 144 Irrational?
The value of the cube root of 144 cannot be expressed in the form of p/q where q ≠ 0. Therefore, the number ∛144 is irrational.
What is the Cube of the Cube Root of 144?
The cube of the cube root of 144 is the number 144 itself i.e. (∛144)^{3} = (144^{1/3})^{3} = 144.
What is the Cube Root of 144?
The cube root of 144 is equal to the negative of the cube root of 144. Therefore, ∛144 = (∛144) = (5.241) = 5.241.
How to Simplify the Cube Root of 144/216?
We know that the cube root of 144 is 5.24148 and the cube root of 216 is 6. Therefore, ∛(144/216) = (∛144)/(∛216) = 5.241/6 = 0.8735.
