Step by Step Solution

Step 1

The picture below shows the cube with the sides (edges) of length L.

Step 2

Since the value of the volume is given, we substitute V with 64 in into the formula as shown:

Step 3

Now, to find L, we just need to find the cube root of 64 as shown. Since 64 = 4×4×4, it is clear that cube root of 64 is 4. Also, since the unit for the volume is in^{3}, the unit for L will be in.
