Is the only way to find a cube root of a really big number guess and check, as i read in other questions, or is there another way without a calculator?

Estimate the cube root of 270 2008-03-11
From Tom:
(a) By plotting suitable graphs, estimate to one decimal place the cube root of 270.
(b) With reference to your answer to part (a), use 8 iterations of a Bisection Search to refine your estimate. Use the nearest whole numbers either side of your estimate from part (a) as starting values.
(c) Using either of your starting values from part (b) as first guess, use the Newton-Raphson method to find the true value of the root (to 6 decimal places). Repeat using the other starting value from part (b) and compare the two results.

Cube roots 2004-10-26
From A parent:
How do you solve the problem of finding the cubed root of (17 to the power of 3).
Can you show me each step and if you have a visual representation of this it would be very helpful.

Also can you show a step by step of finding the cubed root of 27. Visuals help a lot

Cube roots on a calculator 2001-03-24
From Will:
Hi my name is Will.I have a question about the calculator TI-83 Plus or the use of a scientific calculator. It is about using them to turn a cubed root to a decimal. When using that for a rational and irrational number. Rational numbers is a number that terminates or repeates. A irrational number goes on and on and uses ... (like pie). Like when you type the cube root of 8 it gives you 2, and that is a rational number. The squre root of 2 is 1.41421356... that is irrational. So why is it when you put the cube root of 16 in the calculator it says 2.5198421 that is rational it terminates at the ninth digit and my float is set for the tenth? But why when you do it by hand you get the 2 times the cube root of 2 and that is irrational? Why is that?
