estudier Group Title

(5^3 +1) / (5^3 +4^3) = (5+1)/(5+4) (67^3 + 41^3) /(67^3 + 26^3) = (67 +41)/(67+26) So cancelling 3's works?

    Oh, let me correct that. Was wrong about my answer. forgot that 1 does not change even if cubed.

    So correcting my self, yes, because \[1^3 = 1\]

    this is working because of the factorisation of\[x^3+y^3\]

    \[\frac{ x^3+y^3 }{ x^3+z^3 }=\frac{ (x+y)(x^2-xy+y^2) }{ (x+z)(x^2-zx+ z^2)}\] which should equal\[\frac{ x+y }{ x+z }\] if and only if \[x^2-xy+y^2=x^2-zx+z^2\] \[x(y-z)=y^2-z^2\]

    Yes, that's true, what's the general rule, though?

    this should be true\[x=y-z\]

    1 + 4 = 5 41 +26 =67 43 +81 = 124 Still haven't (quite) proved it though....
