# Cube root in Microsoft Excel

In mathematics, the cube root of a number refers to a value that, when raised to the power of 3 (multiplied by itself twice), results in the original number. The radical symbol symbolizes it”∛”.

This tutorial will teach us how to take cube roots in Microsoft Excel. To take a cube root in Microsoft Excel, we can use the pre-built POWER function. Another approach is to utilize the Caret function.

Here we have a volume of some shapes having the same length, width, and height. So to calculate length, we simply take the cube root of the volume.

## Method 1: Utilizing the POWER Formula

The POWER formula in Excel is used to calculate the result of a number raised to a specified power. It follows the syntax:

=POWER(number, power)

• number: The number argument in the POWER formula represents the base number that you wish to raise to a power.
• power: The power argument in the POWER formula specifies the degree to which the base number is raised.

## Step 1 – Utilize the POWER Function

• Utilize the POWER function.
• To take the cube root we will enter the power as “⅓”.

## Step 2 – Utilize Autofill to Take Cuberoot of Each Number

• Utilize Autofill to take the cube root of each number.

## Step 1 – Utilizing the “Caret” Function

• Utilize the caret function to take the cube root.

(A2)^(⅓)

• Where A2 is the cell containing the volume.

## Step 2 – Utilize Autofill to Calculate Cuberoot of Each Number

• Utilize Autofill to calculate the cube root of each number.
