    Need help with a formula in excel.

    I want to be able to calculate surface area, say of a box, by inputting the volume of the box.

    I can do it on a calculator, but I don't think excel supports the cube root function.

    can anyone help???

    Welcome to TSG, Starfish

    Cube rooting, although not directly supported, can be done using the POWER formula

    =POWER(A1,1/3) (where A1 is the number to be cube rooted)
