# Scala - Math cbrt() Method

The Scala Math cbrt() method returns the cube root of the given number. In special cases it returns the following:

• If the argument is NaN, then the result is NaN.
• If the argument is infinite, then the result is an infinity with the same sign as the argument.
• If the argument is zero, then the result is a zero.

### Syntax

```def cbrt(x: Double): Double = java.lang.Math.cbrt(x)
```

### Parameters

 `x` Specify a number.

### Return Value

Returns the cube root of the specified number.

NA.

### Example:

In the example below, cbrt() method is used to find out the cube root of the given number.

```import scala.math._

object MainObject {
def main(args: Array[String]) {
println(s"cbrt(10) = \${cbrt(10)}");
println(s"cbrt(100) = \${cbrt(100)}");
println(s"cbrt(50) = \${cbrt(50)}");
println(s"cbrt(0) = \${cbrt(0)}");
println(s"cbrt(-50) = \${cbrt(-50)}");
println(s"cbrt(Double.NaN) = \${cbrt(Double.NaN)}");
println("cbrt(Double.PositiveInfinity) = "
+ cbrt(Double.PositiveInfinity));
println("cbrt(Double.NegativeInfinity) = "
+ cbrt(Double.NegativeInfinity));
}
}
```

The output of the above code will be:

```cbrt(10) = 2.154434690031884
cbrt(100) = 4.641588833612779
cbrt(50) = 3.6840314986403864
cbrt(0) = 0.0
cbrt(-50) = -3.6840314986403864
cbrt(Double.NaN) = NaN
cbrt(Double.PositiveInfinity) = Infinity
cbrt(Double.NegativeInfinity) = -Infinity
```
