I'm going to take a shot at explaining this.

Cubic measurements of course have three dimensions, the height, width, and length.

The easiest way that I can tell you is to plug into your calculator the 169 number which is the number you want to break down into units and do a cube root.

Like doing a square root, but instead find the y x button on your calculator. It should have a little symbol above it showing a square root symbol but with an X in it. So to solve your little puzzle, put 169 in your calculator, press the key labeled 2nd and then Yx button and then the number 3. The calculator should grind a little bit and spit out the number 5.5287748 which should equal the length of each side.

I hope this helps.
