Nothing is more fun that cubic equations, in school, most are trick questions, such as this. In real life, they are challenging.

x^3+y^3-12xy +64=A

(x+y)(x^2-xy+y^2) -12xy +64=A

now divide thru by -4

x^2-xy+y^2+3xy+64=A/4

x^2+2xy+y^2 =A/4-64

(x+y)^2=A/4-64

16=A/4-64

A=320 which answers the question.

Better check the ± signs
