"^" Means it is cubed Answer: Show work in this space. Answer by jim_thompson5910(28550)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!In order to solve for s (the side), just take the cube root of 729. Solve for s by taking the cube root of both sides (this undoes the exponent of 3)Note: the 3 in front of the root should be higher signifying its a cube root. So the side's length is 9 cm Check: If you multiply 9 by itself 3 times (to find the volume) you'll get 729 Answer works
