# JavaScript: Iterated Cube Root

## JavaScript Math: Exercise-92 with Solution

Write a Python program that takes a positive integer and calculates the cube root of the number until it is less than three. Return the number of steps to complete this process.

**Test Data:**

(27) -> 2

(10000) -> 2

(-100) -> "Not a positive number!"

**Sample Solution:**

**JavaScript Code:**

```
/**
* Function to calculate the number of iterations required to find the cube root of a number greater than or equal to 3.
* @param {number} n - The number for which cube root iterations are to be performed.
* @returns {number|string} - The number of iterations required to find the cube root, or a string indicating that the input is not a positive number.
*/
function test(n) {
let ctr = 0;
while (n >= 3) {
n = n ** (1./3.);
ctr = ctr + 1;
}
if (n < 0)
return 'Not a positive number!';
else
return ctr;
}
// Test cases
console.log("Iterated Cube Root:");
let n = 27;
console.log("n = "+n);
console.log("Number of steps to complete the said process: "+test(n));
n = 10000;
console.log("n = "+n);
console.log("Number of steps to complete the said process: "+test(n));
n = -100;
console.log("n = "+n);
console.log("Number of steps to complete the said process: "+test(n));
```

Output:

Iterated Cube Root: n = 27 Number of steps to complete the said process: 2 n = 10000 Number of steps to complete the said process: 2 n = -100 Number of steps to complete the said process: Not a positive number!
