##### Playing with Numbers

**Some Interesting Patterns of Cube Numbers:**

**1. Adding consecutive odd numbers:**

1 = 1 = 1^{3}^{}3 + 5 = 8 = 2^{3}^{}7 + 9 + 11 = 27 = 3^{3}^{}13 + 15 + 17 + 19 = 64 = 4^{3}^{}21 + 23 + 25 + 27 + 29 = 125 = 5^{3}

We can see from the above pattern,

If we want n^{3}, then we needed n consecutive odd numbers such that the sum of consecutive odd numbers is equal to n^{3}.

**2. Cubes and their prime factors:**

Consider the following prime factorisation of the numbers and their cubes.** **

Prime factorisation of a number |
Prime factorisation of its cube |

4 = 2 × 2 | 4^{3 }= 64 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 = 2^{3} × 2^{3}. |

6 = 2 × 3 | 6^{3} = 216 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 2^{3} × 3^{3}. |

15 = 3 × 5 | 15^{3} = 3375 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 5 × 5 = 3^{3} × 5^{3}. |

12 = 2 × 2 × 3 | 12^{3} = 1728 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 2^{3} × 2^{3} × 3^{3}. |

Observe that each prime factor of a number appears three times in the prime factorisation of its cube.

If in the prime factorisation of any number each factor appears three times, then the number is a perfect cube.

**1) Is 216 a perfect cube?**

By prime factorisation, 216 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3....(factors can be grouped in triples)

Each factor appears 3 times.

216 = 2^{3} × 3^{3} = (2 × 3)^{3} = 6^{3} which is a perfect cube.

**3) Smallest multiple that is a perfect cube**

**Solution:**

#### Example

Is 243 a perfect cube?

243 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3

In the above factorisation 3 × 3 remains after grouping the 3’s in triplets.

Therefore, 243 is not a perfect cube.
