      That depends. you could just go and divide regardless and let it give
      you the result as E9 and E12 and whatever and visually choose the one
      that looks nicest. I wouldn't really want to do a thing like that in
      clip language, but the canonic way, if clips can hack it, is
      3*INT(LOG(x)/3) for the exponent.
