1. ## How do you do this square root question?

Is it like 3 (√27.48)
Or is it something like the 3 means its cubed.
Its giving me trouble so If anyone could help, You don;t have to solve it just tell me how to do it,
I think its the cube route but I am probably wrong,
the question asks to round it so I thought ^3√27 would equal 3
