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
