A cubed number is what you get when a number is used in a multiplication three times.
Example: 4 x 4 x 4 = 64, so 64 is a cubed number.
The first twelve cube numbers are:
 1
 8
 27
 64
 125
 216
 343
 512
 729
 1000
 1331
 1728 (a dozen gross)

A cubic number is said to be a number which is obtained by multiplying the same number three times. In simple Cube=Square of a number*number.
Example: 2 x 2 x 2 = 8, so 64 is a cubic number.
The first twelve cube numbers are:
 1^{3}=1
 2^{3}=8
 3^{3}=27
 4^{3}=64
 5^{3}=125
 6^{3}=216
 7^{3}=343
 8^{3}=512
 9^{3}=729
 10^{3}=1000
 11^{3}=1331
 12^{3}=1728

What is a cube number?
A cube number (or a cube) is a number you can write as a product of three equal factors of natural numbers.
Formula: k=a*a*a=a³ (k and a stand for integers.)1. 1 =1 × 1 × 1 2. 8 =2 × 2 × 2 3. 27 =3 × 3 × 3 4. 64 =4 × 4 × 4 5. 125 =5 × 5 × 5 6. 216 =6 × 6 × 6 7. 343 =7 × 7 × 7 8. 512 =8 × 8 × 8 9. 729 =9 × 9 × 9 10. 1000 =10 × 10 × 10 11. 1331 =11 × 11 × 11 12. 1728 =12 × 12 × 12

Understand and learn the words: square, positive and negative square root, cube and cube root, learn squares up to 15x15 and cubes up to 5 cubed
Square numbers
'Squaring' a number is essentially multiplying it by itself.
2^{2} means '2 squared', or 2 x 2.
The small ^{2} is an index number, or power. It tells us how many times we should multiply 2 by itself.
Similarly 5^{2} means '5 squared’ or 5 x 5.
And 10^{2} means '10 squared', or 10 x 10.
So, 1^{2} = 1 x 1 = 1
2^{2} = 2 x 2 = 4
3^{2} = 3 x 3 = 9
4^{2} = 4 x 4 = 16
5^{2} = 5 x 5 = 25
The square numbers can be written in a sequence:
1, 4, 9, 16, 25… are known as square numbers.
Square roots
The opposite of a square number is a square root.
We use this symbol √ to mean square root.
So we can say that √4 = 2 and √25 = 5.
However, this is not the whole story, because 2 x 2 is also 4, and 5 x 5 is also 25.
So, in fact, √4 = 2 or 2. And √25 = 5 or 5.
The square root can also be shown as an index number of 1/2.
Cube numbers
2^{3} simply means ‘2 cubed’ or 2x2x2.
The cubed symbol, ^{‘3’}, tells us how many times to multiply the number its attached to.
So, 3^{3} means 3x3x3
1^{3}^{ }means 1x1x1 = 1
2^{3 }means 2x2x2 = 8
3^{3 }means^{ }3x3x3 = 27
4^{3 }means 4x4x4 = 64
Cube roots
The opposite of a cube number is a cube root. We use the symbol to mean cube root. Each number only has only one cube root, unlike square roots which can have both positive and negative versions of the same number.
Similar to square roots, cubed roots can also be shown with an index number 1/3, as an alternative to the symbol.
Examples:
^{3}√8 = 2
^{3}√27 = 3
^{3}√64 = 4
^{3}√125 = 5
