1.
The cube root of .000216 is:
.6
.06
77
87
Explanation:

 (.000216)1/3 = 216 1/3 106

 = 6 x 6 x 6 1/3 102 x 102 x 102

 = 6 102

2.
 What should come in place of both x in the equation x = 162 . 128 x
12
14
144
196
Explanation:

 Let x = 162 128 x

Then x2 = 128 x 162

= 64 x 2 x 18 x 9

= 82 x 62 x 32

= 8 x 6 x 3

= 144. x = 144 = 12.

3.
The least perfect square, which is divisible by each of 21, 36 and 66 is:
213444
214344
214434
231444
Explanation:

L.C.M. of 21, 36, 66 = 2772.

Now, 2772 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 7 x 11

To make it a perfect square, it must be multiplied by 7 x 11.

So, required number = 22 x 32 x 72 x 112 = 213444
