If x is a real number,and x³ = 100, then x lies between which two consecutive integers?

A.) 1 and 2

B.) 2 and 3

C.) 3 and 4

D.) 4 and 5

E.) 5 and 6

A.) 1 and 2

B.) 2 and 3

C.) 3 and 4

D.) 4 and 5

E.) 5 and 6

If x³ = 100

Think about which two numbers you cube {take to the third power}, to get close to 100.

4³ = 64 and 5³ = 125 {cubed 4 and 5}

therefore, x is between 4 and 5

**D.) 4 and 5**
