    Your realization that you don’t know everything along with willingness to learn will serve you well.

    Or do we use the cube root because he has three phase? I am confused here as well.
    Cube roots are never in play. The square root of 3 figures a lot in three phase.

    I am confused what is being asked. A three phase load will be three single phase loads connected in a delta or wye configuration. To find the characteristics of each resistor you have to know whether it is delta or wye connected. Draw it out and apply the appropriate voltage "seen" by the resistor.
