### Re: Cube it!

28^3 = 136^2+40^2+40^2+16^2=21952

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
