### Is 15 centimeters x 15 centimeters x 15 centimeters the same as 15centimeters3?

NO !
You cubed the 'cm' part OK. Why did you not also cube the '15'
part ?
Look at this:
You have a cube, 15 cm on each side. What is its volume ?
Length = 15 cm
Width = 15 cm
Height = 15 cm
Volume = (Length) x (width) x (height)
(15 cm) x (15 cm) x (15 cm) = 3,375 cm3
An even slightly better way to look at it:
(15 cm)3 = (15)3 x (cm)3 = (3,375) (cm3)
