    # What is the smallest number by which the following numbers must be multiplied so that the products are perfect cubes 7803?

 On factorising 7803 into prime factors, we get: $7803 = 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 17 \times 17$ On grouping the factors in triples of equal factors, we get: $7803 = \left\{ 3 \times 3 \times 3 \right\} \times 17 \times 17$ It is evident that the prime factors of 7803 cannot be grouped into triples of equal factors such that no factor is left over. Therefore, 7803 is a not perfect cube. However, if the number is multiplied by 17, the factors can be grouped into triples of equal factors such that no factor is left over.Thus, 7803 should be multiplied by 17 to make it a perfect cube. Text Solution Solution : By using prime factorization we could find:
(i)7803
675=3^3times17^2
As we can see that 17 is not cubed.
Hence, 17 is the smallest number by which 7803 should be multiplied to make it a perfect cube.

(ii)107811
107811=3^3times3times11^3
As we can see that 3 is not cubed.
Hence, 3 is the smallest number by which 107811 should be multiplied to make it a perfect cube.
(iii)35721
35721=3^6times7^2
As we can see that 7 is not cubed.
Hence, 7 is the smallest number by which 35721 should be multiplied to make it a perfect cube.
