**Jai**, Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at 3:20amLet x = number

It was said in the first statement that the number is multiplied by itself and then by itself again. Thus, it was multiplied by itself thrice:

x*x*x = -1000

x^3 = -1000

We get the cuberoot of this, so that we can get x alone on the left side:

cuberoot(x^3) = cuberoot(-1000)

x = cuberoot(-1000)

Note that -1000 is a perfect cube, meaning there is a whole number or integer that is when multiplied by itself three times gives -1000. And that is number is -10, because (-10)(-10)(-10) = -1000.

Thus, x = -10

Hope this helps~ :3
