Jue, Brian
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v41 n7 p975-979 2010
Separate a three-digit number into its component digits. After raising each digit to the third power and computing the sum of the cubes, determine how often the original number reappears. Modular arithmetic is used to reduce the number of potential solutions to a more manageable quantity. (Contains 4 tables.)
