Thanks guest, that is a great answer.  I just wanted to think about it a little. 

There are an infinite number of answers.

 

(a)^3 + (b)^3 + (c)^3 = 33

what is a, b and C?

 

If a=b=c then

 

\(3*(a^3)=33\\ a^3=11\\ a=\sqrt[3]{11}\\ a=b=c=\sqrt[3]{11}\)

 

 

Here is another answer.

 

(a)^3 + (b)^3 + (c)^3 = 33

\(a=1,\;\;b=2,\;\;c=\sqrt[3]{24}\)

(33/3)^1/3=2.2239800, the values of a, b, c, because a=b=c

yep, but solve for whole numbers?
