    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    There are N point particles in a volume V. Find an equation for the mean spacing between the particles.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    distance = (V^1/3)/N would be my first guess?

    Maybe you could test your guess with a Monte Carlo simulation.
