The cube root of a negative number is negative.

No.

You cannot get real square root of a negative number because two numbers multiplied by themselves are always positive You can always get a real cube root of a negative number because three negative numbers multiplied by themselves give a negative .

No, because the inverse function would not work. Every time you multiply a positive by a positive you get a positive.

No, the cube root of -9 is an irrational number.

When two negative or two positive numbers are multiplied together, they always result in a positive number; and when a positive and a negative number are multiplied together, they will always result in a negative number. Thus, you cannot square root a negative number because there are no real numbers that, when squared, would result in a negative number. For example: (-2)(-2) = 4 (2)(2) = 4 √4 = +/- 2 √(-4) = ? No real number, when squared, is a negative! Does not exist! The cube of a number is different, because you are multiplying three numbers together instead of just two. As a result, you can get a negative or a positive number. For example: (-2)(-2)(-2) = -8r (2)(2)(2) = 8 3√8 = 2 3√(-8) = -2

Because if you multiply a negative number three times, the product will be negative.

Every positive integer has two square roots, a positive square root and a negative square root. This is because, just like a positive number multiplied by a positive number is equal to a positive number, a negative number multiplied by a negative number is equal to a positive number. Therefore, rounded to two decimal places, the positive square root is equal to 7.28, and the negative square root is -7.28.

It is always plus

yes, you can find a real root to the cube root of any negative real number. There will also be two complex roots which satisfy it, as well.

No.

I am pretty sure that the cube root of negative seven is a surd. I checked on the calculator.......and it showed a negative number.....??I think when it is not a surd...it's supposed to say error, so the number probably means that it is a surd..
