Text Solution

  

Reasoning:

 Identity:

\(\begin{align}x^{3}+y^{3}+z^{3}-3 x y z=(x+y+z)\left(x^{2}+y^{2}+z^{2}-x y-y z-z x\right)\end{align}\)

Steps:

By the identity:

\[\begin{align}x^{3}+y^{3}+z^{3}-3 x y z=(x+y+z)\left(x^{2}+y^{2}+z^{2}-x y-y z-z x\right)\end{align}\]

If  \(x + y + z = 0\)  then the entire \(RHS\) becomes \(0\) and hence the \(LHS\) \(\begin{align}x^{3}+y^{3}+z^{3}-3 x y z=0\end{align}\)

Hence \(\begin{align}x^{3}+y^{3}+z^{3}=3 x y z\end{align}\)
