Well 3 cubed (33) means three raised to the power of three. This means that the number three will have to be multiplied by itself to the number of power it is raise to.
Any number can be raised to a specified power e.g. 24 this means that 2 is raise to the power of four, to solve it you just multiply 2 by the number of power it is raised, that is 2x2x2x2 = 16.

Now, to solve for 3 cubed, we will have it as, 3x3x3 = 27.

This should not be confused to volume of a cuboid because the cubed keyword will be associated to a certain parameter such as meters, centimeters, milliliters etc. for example to find the volume of a cuboid which has length=3cm, width=3cm & height=3cm we take 3cmx3cmx3cm = 27cm3
So 3 cubed is not a volume. Then 3 cubed = 27.

3 cubed is a shortened way to say 3 times height length and width, just like squared would be the number times itself.

OR.....

It could mean that you have 3 ice cubes in the tray and that your question or statement was not finished, like "What does 3 cubed pieces of water mean?" In which case the answer would be "3 pieces of ice"

To cube something means to express the volume it would contain with a given height, length, and width. To find this, those three measurements are multiplied together.

3 cubed tells us that each measurement is "3" so we would use 3 multiplied three times.

height (3) x length (3) x width (3) = 3 cubed.

3 x 3 x 3 = 27 cubic units

A perfect cube has three lengths of equal length. Hence, 3 cubed would result in each of these lengths being represented by the number 3 (possibly 3cm, 3m etc). These brings you to the sum 3x3x3 = 27. 27 is a representation of volume, but can only be understood when you actually know what measurement the 3 represents.
