(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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, let me correct that. Was wrong about my answer. forgot that 1 does not change even if cubed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So correcting my self, yes, because \[1^3 = 1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this is working because of the factorisation of\[x^3+y^3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ x^3+y^3 }{ x^3+z^3 }=\frac{ (x+y)(x^2xy+y^2) }{ (x+z)(x^2zx+ z^2)}\] which should equal\[\frac{ x+y }{ x+z }\] if and only if \[x^2xy+y^2=x^2zx+z^2\] \[x(yz)=y^2z^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11 + 4 = 5 41 +26 =67 43 +81 = 124 Still haven't (quite) proved it though....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1K, you sub in what u r saying into the expansion of the cubes and then the denominator and numerator are equal, right?
