Dudeney Number

 * A number is said to be Dudeney if the sum of the digits, is the cube root of the entered number.
 * Example- Let the number be 512, its sum of digits is 5+1+2=8. The cube root of 512 is also 8.
 *          Since, the sum of the digits is equal to the cube root of the entered number;
 *          it is a Dudeney Number.
