my little BASIC program gave the following:

Chipmunk BASIC v3.6.5(b3)

4 possible cases:

**135
**

175

518

598

testing for 518

518 ---> 5 + 1^2 + 8^3 = 5+1+512 = 518

YUP!

I ran the following little program

Chipmunk BASIC v3.6.5(b3)

>10 for a = 1 to 9

>20 for b = 0 to 9

>30 for c =0 to 9

>40 if(100*a+10*b+c) = a+b*b+c*c*c then print a,b,c

>50 next c

>60 next b

>70 next a

>run

1 3 5

1 7 5

5 1 8

5 9 8
