Find the smallest number by which 8788 must be multiplied to obtain a perfect cube?
Solution:
The prime factorisation of 8788
= (2 × 2) × (13 × 13 × 13) ∴ From the above product 2 ¡s left in the triplet.
∴ 2 should be multiplied with 8788 we will get a perfect cube number.

Question 4.
What smallest number should 7803 be multiplied with so that the product becomes a perfect cube?
Solution:
The prime factorisation of 7803
= (3 × 3 × 3) × (17 × 17) ∴ From the above product 17 is left in
the triplet.
∴ 17 should be multiplied to 7803 then we will get a perfect cube number. Question 5.
Find the smallest number by which 8640 must be divided so that the quotient is a perfect cube’?
Solution:
The prime factorisation of 8640
= (2 × 2 × 2) × (2 × 2 × 2) × 5 × (3 × 3 × 3)
= (2)3 × (2)3 × 5 × (3)3 Question 6.
Ravi made a cuboid of plasticine ofdimensions 12cm, 8cm and 3cm. How many minimum number of such cuboids will be needed to form a cube’?
Solution:
The volume of a plasticine cuboid
= l × b × h
= 12 × 8 × 3
= 288 cm3
If the minimum no. of such cuboids will be needed to form a cube then its volume be less than 288 i.e., 216 cm3
∴ s3 = 216
s = $$\sqrt{216}=\sqrt{6 \times 6 \times 6}=\sqrt{6^{3}}$$ = 6
∴ The side of the cube 6 cm Question 7.
Find the smallest prime number dividing the sum 311 +513.
Solution:
The units digit in 311 is 7 ∴ The units digit in 311 is 7
The units digit in 513 is 5
7 + 5 = 12 is divided by a smallest prime number 2.
∴ The smallest prime number that divide the sum 311 + 513 = 2
