Can any base ten repunit
, other than 1, be a perfect cube?
If so, give an example. Otherwise prove that no base ten repunit (other than 1) can be a perfect cube.
Googling "repunit cube" results in most references saying that it is not known if there are any repunits that are cubes. A couple seem to disagree and quote a single source, and claim that there are no repunit perfect cubes. They don't show the proof, only point to, as I said, a single reference.
In any case, it would seem as difficult as solving the Riemann Hypothesis or Goldbach conjecture (at least a D5).
