Anyone know how to solve this quickly....I have such trouble calculating cube roots. It's a simple problem, but I was hoping maybe someone knew a trick to calculating cube roots (maybe vedic math...)..

\(((0.064)^{\frac13})^2=((\frac{64}{1000})^{\frac13})^2=(\frac{4}{10})^2=\frac{16}{100}=0.16\)

I found a good tip on another board...pretty useful I think...

* The square root of a decimal will have half as many decimal places as does the original decimal.
* The cube root of a decimal will have one-third as many decimal places as does the original decimal.
Etc.

= (0.064)^2/3
= (0.064 x 0.064)^1/3
= (0.4 x 0.4)^3/3
= 0.16
