Ex 7.1, 3 Find the smallest number by which each of the following numbers must be divided to obtain a perfect cube. (i) 81 We see that 81 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 Since 3 does not occur in triplets, ∴ 81 is not a perfect cube. So, we divide by 3 to make triplet So, our number becomes 81 × 𝟏/𝟑 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 𝟏/𝟑 = 3 × 3 × 3 Now, it becomes a perfect cube. So, we divide 81 by 3 to make it a perfect cube
