A cube has a volume of 27 cubic units. What is the length of the side of the cube? I don't understand how to get the answer for this question!! Does it mean one side or all sides? I know that 27 / 4 = 6.75 but I don't understand if it means all sides or one side.

1. All of the sides of a cube are equal. Think of a die.

To find the length of each side, take the cube root of 27.

3 * 3 * 3 = 27
