  1. Ok. I'll if I can help.
    So volume = area * height, right?
    But the area of a face of a cube, or a square is just the side^2. Correct?
    And the height is the side length, because a the length width and height of a cube are all the same.

    So...
    side^3 = 729.
    Basically you have to take the cube root of 729 to get the side length.
    Did that help?

  2. V = s^3
    729 = s^3
