Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2replace x with 9 and see what happens x^3 = 27 9^3 = 27 729 = 27 .. this equation is false so x = 9 is not the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\large x ^{\color{red}{ 3}} = 27\implies \sqrt[{\color{red}{ 3}}]{x ^{\color{red}{ 3}}}=\sqrt[{\color{red}{ 3}}]{27}\implies x=?\)
