re(2): computer solution Comment 5 of 5 |
(In reply to re: computer solution by Dej Mar)

Actually zero had not occurred to me. I wasn't actually considering leading zeros, just considering numbers such as ME = (M+E)^3 or HOME = (H+O+M+E)^3.


But of course you're right: 0 is just as good a solution for I = (I)^3 as 1.
