    Re: correct me

    What about?

    The number of digits in the cube root of the least seven digit number is three.

    Note 1, is it 'cube root' or 'cubed root'?

    Note 2, I don't understand 'of the least'.

    Thanks mr.caseopia
    1. Not cubed root, it is cube root; cube root of 8 is 2.
    2. Least seven digit number means the smallest number having 7 digits, 1000000 is the least seven digit number.
    And now any grammatical mistake in the above sentence?
