since you can't find the square of 8 you look inside that number to see what other numbers can be squared.
For instance, 8 is divisible by 2 and 4. You can find the square root of 4. That is the first step.
Now on n^3 you simply put it in terms that are divisible by 2. so you can break n^3 up into n^2 and n^1 because that still equals n^3.
Now all that is left is your problem: SQUARE ROOT 2X4 n^1 N^2
since you can find the square root of 4 and n^2 can be divided by two your answer would be
2N^1 SQUARE ROOT 2 n^1
hope that helps
