2^8 = 216

You want to solve 6x = 216. For such a simple problem (since 216 is an integer power of 6), you can use trial and error, that is to say, try out different numbers for "x". For a more general method, that works in other cases, you can calculate this as log(216) / log(6). Just make sure you use the same base (either base 10 or base e) for both logarithms).

6The cube root of 216 is 6, if that is what you are asking. I'm assuming that 'qube' is a typo

The square root of 216 is ~14.7

A number does not have an exponent in isolation. It has an exponent in the context of a base. The same number can have different combinations of base and exponent. A base cannot be zero but usually it is restricted to positive real numbers. In higher mathematics, the most common base is the irrational (even transcendental) number e = 2.71828...Thus 216 = 216^1 or 10^2.3345 or e^5.3753 or 6^3 or 36^1.5 and so on.

Think of the "ex" in index as meaning exponent. Write the prime factorization with exponents. 216 = 23 x 33

An exponent is a number that indicates how many copies of the base are to be multiplied together. An exponent is a number like any other and its factors - if any - are foud in the same way as the factor of any other number.

63 = 216, which is a multiple of 8. So the LCM is 216.

Yes, 6 is the base and 2 is the exponent in 6^2. To solve, 6 * 6 = 36 since we know that an exponent is not, in this instance, 6 * 2, but 6 * 6. If it was 6^3, the answer would be 6 * 6 * 6 = 216.
