If you want the answer, it is here:

function cube(n) { return n * n * n; }

This is simple mathematics. If you have a number, the cube of the number is that number multiplied by itself 3 times. In other words, the cube of n is n * n * n, or n^3.

@ash15khng the way he explained it confused me once seen in the function I understood what he was trying to explain.
