3 can be expressed as the sum of 3 cubes. For instance, 3 = 1³ + 1³ + 1³ and 3 = 4³ + 4³ + (-5)³. And as I’m sure you know, it was recently discovered that 3 = 569,936,821,221,962,380,720³ + (−569,936,821,113,563,493,509)³ + (−472,715,493,453,327,032)³.
Why is it so hard to find three cubes that add up to simple numbers like 33 and 42? explains to teachers and students how mathematicians go about finding limited choices within an infinite search space: via
