# If x + y + z = 8 and xy + yz + zx = 20 find the value of x3 + y3 + z3 - 3xyz.

If x + y + z = 8 and xy + yz + zx = 20 find the value of x3 + y3 + z3 - 3xyz.

Kishore Kumar

Given x + y + z = 8 and xy + yz + zx = 20 Consider, x + y + z = 8 Squaring on both sides, we get (x + y + z)2 = 82 x2 + y2 + z2 +2(xy + yz +zx) = 64 â‡’ x2 + y2 + z2 = 64 âˆ’ 2(xy + yz +zx)                        = 64 âˆ’ 2(20) = 64 âˆ’ 40 = 24 âˆ´ x2 + y2 + z2 = 24 We know that x3 + y3 + z3 âˆ’ 3xyz = (x + y + z)( x2 + y2 + z2 âˆ’ xy âˆ’ yz âˆ’ zx)                                                    = 8(24 âˆ’20) = 8(4) = 32

Given x + y + z = 8 and xy + yz + zx = 20 Consider, x + y + z = 8 Squaring on both sides, we get (x + y + z)2 = 82 x2 + y2 + z2 +2(xy + yz +zx) = 64 â‡’ x2 + y2 + z2 = 64 âˆ’ 2(xy + yz +zx)                        = 64 âˆ’ 2(20) = 64 âˆ’ 40 = 24 âˆ´ x2 + y2 + z2 = 24 We know that x3 + y3 + z3 âˆ’ 3xyz = (x + y + z)( x2 + y2 + z2 âˆ’ xy âˆ’ yz âˆ’ zx)                                                    = 8(24 âˆ’20) = 8(4) = 32

Answer. Given x + y + z = 8 and xy + yz + zx = 20 Consider, x + y + z = 8 Squaring on both sides, we get (x + y + z)2 = 82 x2 + y2 + z2 +2(xy + yz +zx) = 64 â‡’ x2 + y2 + z2 = 64 âˆ’ 2(xy + yz +zx) = 64 âˆ’ 2(20) = 64 âˆ’ 40 = 24 âˆ´ x2 + y2 + z2 = 24 We know that x3 + y3 + z3 âˆ’ 3xyz = (x + y + z)( x2 + y2 + z2 âˆ’ xy âˆ’ yz âˆ’ zx) = 8(24 âˆ’20) = 8(4) = 32
