#### New Solution for the Sum of Three Cubes for 3!

It’s easy to represent 3 is a sum of three cubes **3 = 1 ^{3} + 1^{3} + 1^{3}**, but can we characterize all the solutions of

**x**with x, y, and z integers?

^{3}+ y^{3}+ z^{3}= 3Until this week, the only other solution known was **4 ^{3} + 4^{3} + (-5)^{3} = 3**.

Andrew Booker and collaboration PI Andrew Sutherland just found the next simplest solution

**3 = 569936821221962380720 ^{3} + (-569936821113563493509)^{3} + (-472715493453327032)^{3}**
