just for safety: a\(\ne\)b a\(\ne\)-b
\[a^3 + b^3 = (a + b)(a^2 - ab + b^2)\]So,\[(a + b)(a^2 - ab + b^2) = 0\]Dividing both sides by a + b,\[a^2 - ab + b^ 2 = 0\]Since \(a^2 - 2ab + b^2 = (a - b)^2\), we have,\[a^2 - 2ab + b^2 +ab = 0\]\[(a - b)^2 + ab = 0\]\[(a - b)^2 = - ab\]\[a^2 + b^2 = ab\]One such case is a = 0 and b = 0, but you haven't allowed that. :(
hmm....nice try no other formula for a^3+b^3 ?

Are you sure that your question is correct? If a^3 + b^3=0, then either a=-b or a=b=0.... :\ (because x^3 if a one one function)
yes, question is correct.
0
how ?
continuing from parthkohli, |dw:1347876944383:dw|
and your question simplifies to |dw:1347876996875:dw|
neat solution
yes, thats right, its 0.there is easier way. rather than continuing...
@mukushla thanks :) @hartnn what is it?
\((a^3+b^3)=(a+b)^3-3ab(a+b)=0\) and the rest is ............
haha... yeah :D
well even though we solved it, it IS technically wrong I think? :\
|dw:1347877692079:dw|
|dw:1347877816341:dw|
if i read it correctly, there exist no a,b not equal to 0, such that a^2+b^2-ab = 0.....??
Yea...to be clearer, I mean that a^2+b^2-ab=0 iff a=b=0
u sure about a^2+b^2-ab=0 iff a=b=0 ?
yea... you can try that... you won't find any a, b s.t a,b are not both zero and the condition is satisfied....
algebraically, x^3, is a one one function... so, a^3 +b^3=0 implies a^3=(-b)^3 which implies a=-b
a^3 =-b^3 have 3 roots.....i think
Graphically,
1 Attachment
I plotted two graphs.... z=xy and z=x^2+y^2 they intersect only at (0,0) Yes there are three values of b for every a. But they are complex.
If your question covers complex numbers, then it's fine.... but for real, this is it :)
@hartnn Thanks for the time man.. that was a good exercise for me ^_^
hmm..log of complex numbers....didn't think of it b4 posting....and thanks to u for wonderful explanation.
you're most welcome buddy!
