Challenge #176: Math Class Drill

Asteroid

A solution to last weeks' challenge can be found here

 

The end of summer is near, and it's nearly time to head back to school! Get your brain back into the swing of things with this math class drill. @KaneG  found this problem in his desk on a piece of paper, and he thought it'd be heaps easier to solve in Alteryx. Is he right?

I love the smell of math in the morning.

My solution - 371! I like that it's only 1 off from one of the other known answers, 370. Gotta love the power of one.

Like @PhilipMannering and @RolandSchubert, I went for single formula solution

A very repetitive single formula

Pow(tonumber(Substring(tostring([RowCount]),0,1)),3) +
Pow(tonumber(Substring(tostring([RowCount]),1,1)),3) +
Pow(tonumber(Substring(tostring([RowCount]),2,1)),3)

My first thought was to generate numbers 0-9 then append them a couple times to get my list of possible numbers. This left 0 as a possible first number, but none of these turned out as answers so I left it as is.
