#### Storyboard Text

• ﻿Could you explain to me what square and cube roots are? I have a test tomorrow and I need to study.
• Sure thing, sis. I remember learning that in the 8th grade.﻿
• I don't know if I get it. Could you give me an example?﻿
• Okay, a square root is a number multiplied by itself, and what it would equal.
• Easier than I thought! I remember that an imperfect square root ends in a decimal.
• Well, the square root of 64 would be 8, because 8 multiplied by 8 equals 64. This is a perfect square root.
• What about cube roots?
• A cube root is like a square root, but instead of multiplying it twice you do it three times.
• The cube root of 64 would be 4, because 4 times 4 times 4 equals 64.
• Wow! Thanks so much. It's so easy! I'l ace that test tomorrow.
• No problem! Glad I could be of your assistance. Let me know how the test goes!
