I am assuming that 35 and 42 are the volumes of these cubes? A piece of info you left out.

**Ratio**

So their ratio would be 35:42 which can be reduced.

**Side Lengths**

Since they are cubes, all the sides are equal.

So find the cube root of 35, and the cube root of 42 and you should have their side lengths.

Cube root means that number that you multipy by itself 3 times to get the volume.

x • x • x = 35

x • x • x = 42
