x=0 y=0 z=0 ; x=0 y=-1 z=1 (you can permute this); General solution x=0 y=a z=-a where a is any integer

there is infinite number of solution i.ex is any real or integer for all ...y+z=0 how i got this is on simplification of the above you can get an equation (x+y)(y+z)(x+z)=0 hence apply zero factor theorem here to get to the solution

(x + y + z)^3 = x^3  +  y^3  +  z ^3  +  3(x^2 y   + xy^2  +  x^2z   + xz^2   +  y^2z  +   yz^2)  + 6xyz

if (x + y + z)^3 = x^3  +  y^3  +  z ^3  then 3(x^2 y   + xy^2  +  x^2z   + xz^2   +  y^2z  +   yz^2)  + 6xyz =0

now just check this to be with hit and trial!!
