If a cube is sliced into equal sized smaller cubes, which quantity of smaller cubes could be attained?
a)4 b)16 c)1/4 d)1/5 e)1

math 
Ms. Sue,
What are the dimensions of the larger cube?

math 
KokkoDeRas,
e)1 only with whole cube root

math 
john,
could you explain to me how to solve it please?

math 
Ms. Sue,
KokkoDeRas is right.
You need to find a perfect cube.
The only choice that is a perfect cube is 1.

math 
Ms. Sue,
Volume = length * width * height

math 
KokkoDeRas,
the test gives you the possible number of smaller cubes [a)4 b)16 c)1/4 d)1/5 e)1]
they must be the solutions the cube root of an integer, example [a)4 b)16 c)1/4 d)1/5 e)8] smaller cubes (e)8 cube 2
2*2*2=8
1*1*1=1 
math 
john,
what if the options are 4, 16, 25, 36, 64. How would the answer is going to change? I think the answer is 64. could you tell me if the 64 is the right answer?

math 
KokkoDeRas,
for Ms.Sue I understand but you have to choose an answer ... but maybe I'm wrong
For jhonn YES 
math 
Ms. Sue,
Yes. The cube root of 64 is 4.
