Cube Algorithm

 Cube Algorithm

I found the following:

  1. Machine ready!
  2. Calculate the square of the number.
  3. Don't zero.
  4. Add and subtract (with appropriate shifts of carriage) until the square number appears in White dial.
  5. The cube it's the value on Black dial.

e.g. 175^3

  1. Set register: Put 175 into Setting Register;
  2. Calculate the square (value on Black dial will be 30625);
  3. Now, without zeroing, add and subtract (with appropriate shift of carriage) until the value 30625 (the square of 175) appears on the White Dial;
  4. Read the cube value of 175 (5359375) on the Result Register (Black Dial)
