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

The volume of a cube is 8, how long is its main diagonal (the line segment joining the two farthest corners)?

2. Relevant equations

Pythagorean theorem

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no idea how to determine the length of the line segment between the two farthest corners of a cube. I've never confronted a problem of this sort.

Once I learn how to determine that line segment, I'll be able to solve the rest of the problem using Pythagorean Theorem.
