**MathMate**, Tuesday, July 2, 2013 at 4:39pmBy trial and error, I get:

11^3+(-5)^3+(-6)^3=990

If we assume the largest integer is N such that

N(a,b)=a^3-b^3-(a-b)^3

=3ab(a-b)

The likely candidates are:

990=3*11*5(11-5)... a,b,c = 11, -5, -6

993=3*331

996=3*332=3(4*83)

999=3*333=3(9*37)

All of which cannot be reduced to the form

3ab(a-b).
