# Third solution to writing 3 as a sum of three third powers!

Andrew Booker and Andrew Sutherland have found, using the the Charity Engine distributed computing platform, a third solution in integers to the equation $x^3 + y^3 + z^3 = 3$, so we now know each of

• 13 + 13 + 13

• 43 + 43 + (-5)3

• 5699368212219623807203 + (-569936821113563493509)3 + (-472715493453327032)3 (verify!)

is equal to 3. It is conjectured that there are infinitely many integer solutions, but we seem to be nowhere near that.
