 Diophantine And Almost Fermat (Posted on 2007-02-21)
Consider three positive integers x< y< z in arithmetic sequence.

Determine analytically all possible solutions of each of the following equations:

(I) x3 + z3 = y3 + 10yz

(II) x3 + y3 = z3 - 2, with y< 116.

Since x<y<z are three positive integers  in arithmetic sequence (for both the parts I and II) , one may substitute:
x = y-a and z = y+a where a is a positive integer.................

Important
: Remember that each of x, y and z must be positive integers for both the parts.
