(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

let the complex number 1 = 1 + 0i. Show this number has three cube roots. Use any means to find them.

2. Relevant equations

not sure. cubic root x means there is some number y, x = y*y*y.

3. The attempt at a solution

Well one root has to be 1

Another is (-1)*i^2 and another 1*i^2. I am not sure about these two, and I am not sure I could give an explanation why even if they are right.
