Answer

$4.913$ centimeters cubed

Work Step by Step

We are given that $V(x)=x^{3}$. This relation is written in function notation, which tells us that the volume of a cube is a function of the length of its sides. Therefore, if we know the length of its sides, we can calculate the volume of that cube. We are given that the die has sides that are 1.7 centimeters long. We can insert $x=1.7$ into the equation to find the volume of the die (which has the shape of a cube). $V(1.7)=1.7^{3}=1.7\times1.7\times1.7=4.913$ centimeters cubed
