Is AB a side length....or.......the length of the diagonal  ???

AB is the length of the diagonal, sorry.

Take the cube root of 85184........you should get 44....this is the side length, s

The diagonal length is given by

sāˆš3  = 44āˆš3  = about 76.21cm

side = $${{\mathtt{85\,184}}}^{\left\{{\frac{{\mathtt{1}}}{{\mathtt{3}}}}\right\}} = {\mathtt{43.999\: \!999\: \!999\: \!999\: \!99}}$$      =  44cm

 

diagonal of base =   $${\sqrt{{{\mathtt{44}}}^{{\mathtt{2}}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{{\mathtt{44}}}^{{\mathtt{2}}}}} = {\mathtt{62.225\: \!396\: \!744\: \!416\: \!182\: \!1}}$$

 

diagonal of cube =  $${\sqrt{\left({{\mathtt{44}}}^{{\mathtt{2}}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{{\mathtt{44}}}^{{\mathtt{2}}}\right){\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{{\mathtt{44}}}^{{\mathtt{2}}}}} = {\mathtt{76.210\: \!235\: \!533\: \!030\: \!600\: \!9}}$$
