    Hmmm.... not so sure what to do with this one. I guess I'm assuming that there are five variables, c, u, b, e, and d, and you're trying to find which values will make the equation true. I did a quick python script that ran through values from 1 to 50, but nothing came out. any pointers as to whether or not i'm on the right track?

    You're on the right track. Just make sure you're not ignoring any numbers. Smile [EDITED]

    thanks for the pointer! just an edit then, i tried using integer values from -9 and 9 and got a lot of results that matched the set.... what sort of form should the solution be in? or am i missing something with how the equation is to be set.

    I solved the equation but I am stuck with the form .please help.

    Btw, you can try to solve this using a calculator, as long as you make a few reasonable assumptions. Wink

    I dont get this mission at all.
    I can generate all the solutions and some solutions look more interesting than others
    but nothing really obvious stands out as an answer.
    Are some mathematical shenanigans involved ?
    Is there a smiley for 'very perplexed' ?

    -----EDIT------
    my bad i had misinterpreted the equation.

    I actually found 2 answers. Both work. Sweet.

    Someone should add to the challenge text that 0 is not an option as that's the obvious choice!
    And also that one of them being 1 and the rest 0 is not an option either.

    I haven't solved it, but, also, I'm not sure how can there be only *1* solution if the order of the variables does not matter... unless they all have the same value (which it doesn't look like as I've tested a lot of repeated values for all)...

    one thing that was not clear to me at first making it impossible to solve the equation is that:

    [EDITED] <Yes, it is part of the challenge Grin - Null Set>


    just to make it clearer to someone else also having issues Smile

    (please remove if part of the challenge was this "logic-like challenge" trap)

    make the total of digits equal your cube root of a five-digit number.

    The challenge should state that:
    a) All numbers must be 1 digit only (so the solution has to have only 5 digits)
    b) "CUBED" doesn't mean C * U * B * E * D as any reasonable person who knows a bit about mathematics would assume, but rather means the concatenation of the digits of each number
    and c) apparently no number can be 0.

    Figuring out all these arbitrary rules CANNOT be part of the challenge. I mean come on.
