How many small cubes fits a bigger cube, when the volume of the bigger cube is 216 cm

In maths I had this question:
"he makes a larger Cube out of the small cubes.
The volume of this larger cube is 216 cm.
How many small cubes does he use?"

Wouldn't you find the width, length and height of the larger cube (which would be the same size) and then divide it by 4? WHAT DO I DO!! Help:(

The cube root of 216 is 6. That means one 216cm cube could have 6X6X6 1cm cubes, making a total of 216, 1cm cubes.
