(In reply to
solution by Daniel)
I agree.
A slightly different approach:
If a number is of the form 4k^6, then it is worth {0,4,36}, mod64.
If a number is of the form 2k^6, then it is worth either 0, or (16n14), mod64.
If a number is of the form k^6, then it is worth either 0, or (8n7), mod64.
But there is no combination of numbers of the form (16n14) and (8n7) which gives a total of {0,4,36}. Hence each of a,b,c, must be worth 0, mod64, and so even, say (2x),(2y),(2z).
(2x)^6+2(2y)^6=4(2z)^6 resolves to x^6+2y^6=4z^6, and so on ad infinitum, with no solution other than a=b=c=0.
