### Is the cube root always a whole number?

"Most of the time" is somewhat problematic, since we are dealing
with infinite sets of numbers. But it is tempting to say that. The
fact is, any number can be a cube root, since you can cube any
number by multiplying it by itself twice. But the cube root of a
whole number is always either a whole number or an irrational
number. And it is true that if N is any reasonably large whole
number (say, 1000 or more), the majority (in fact, at least 99%) of
the whole numbers from 1 to N have irrational cube roots.
Answer 1
No. Most of the time it's an irrational number.
