Here is a method: cube root of 400g = n, where n is an integer cube both sides: 400g = n3 then: g = n3/400 therefore: n3/400 must be an integer if this is so, then n3 must be divisible by 400 with no remainder, and n must be => cube root of 400 which is 7.368 bracket the answer by substitution: let n=8, n cubed = 512 no good let n=12, n cubed = 1728 no good let n=20, n cubed = 8000, 8000/400=20 OK No smaller value of n will be divisible by 400 without a remainder, so g=20 is the smallest positive integer that meets the requirement.
