#### Question

Find the smallest number by which the following number must be divided to obtain a perfect cube.

192

#### Solution

192 = __2 × 2 × 2__ × __2 × 2 × 2__ × 3

Here, one 3 is left which is not in a triplet.

If we divide 192 by 3, then it will become a perfect cube.

Thus, 192 ÷ 3 = 64 = __2 × 2 × 2__ × __2 × 2 × 2__ is a perfect cube.

Hence, the smallest number by which 192 should be divided to make it a perfect cube is 3.
