 Thinking octal (Posted on 2018-05-30)
In "A Mathematician's Apology", G. H. Hardy wrote:
"There are just four numbers, after unity, which are the sums
of the cubes of their digits: 153,370,371,407."

Clearly, he referred to base 10.

What are such numbers in base-8?
Provide your list in octal system.

 VB program Comment 2 of 2 |
DefDbl A-Z
Dim crlf\$

Private Sub Form_Load()
Form1.Visible = True
Text1.Text = ""
crlf = Chr(13) + Chr(10)

For a = 0 To 7
For b = 0 To 7
For c = 0 To 7
For d = 0 To 7
v = ((a * 8 + b) * 8 + c) * 8 + d
tot = a * a * a + b * b * b + c * c * c + d * d * d
If v = tot Then Text1.Text = Text1.Text & a & b & c & d & crlf
Next
Next
Next
Next

Text1.Text = Text1.Text & crlf & " done"

End Sub

shows

0000
0001
0134
0205
0463
0660
0661

which of course includes the trivial 0 and 1.
