Talk:Mock AIME 2 2006-2007 Problems/Problem 11
This problem doesn't make sense. What are the roots of a system of equations? If there are multiple solutions, do I add the cubes of x, y and z for each solution? Since the equations are symmetric, do I re-count a solution for each symmetry? Why isn't the answer just 3 = x^2 + y^2 + z^2?
Someone please re-word this in some way that makes more sense.--JBL 21:24, 17 September 2006 (EDT)
