 2009 a cube? Baseless! (Posted on 2009-03-09)
Can the base M number 2009 be a perfect cube, where M is a positive integer ≥ 2?

If the answer is yes, give an example. Otherwise prove that the base M number 2009 can never be a perfect cube.

 Submitted by K Sengupta No Rating Solution: (Hide) There was a typing error in the problem text, and the said text should read as: "Can the base M number 2009 be a perfect cube, where M is a positive integer ≥ 10?" instead of "........M is a positive integer ≥ 2?" The answer to the problem is that the base M number 2009 can never be a perfect cube. This has been proved by Daniel in this location.
