I’m looking for positive integer solutions to $x^n+y^n+z^n=u^n+v^n+w^n=p$, where $p$ is prime.

**Background.**

I was looking at “Primes which are the sum of three nonzero 8th powers” https://oeis.org/A283019 and the like, and wondered if there are rules similar to those for a prime being the sum of two squares.

- Solutions for diophantine equation $3^a+1=2^b$
- Does the sum of the reciprocals of composites that are $ \le $ 1
- There is no Pythagorean triple in which the hypotenuse and one leg are the legs of another Pythagorean triple.
- Find all Integers ($ n$) such that $n\neq 6xy\pm x\pm y$
- If $p$, $q$ are naturals, solve $p^3-q^5=(p+q)^2$.
- Solve $x^p + y^p = p^z$ when $p$ is prime

**My efforts.**

I’ve found primes of the form $x^n+y^n+z^n$ up to $n=19$.

For $n=1$ solutions are trivial, for $n=2$ they are abundant. There are plenty of results for $n=3$ and they’re not uncommon for $n=4$.

However, for $\color{blue}{n=5}$ I’ve found just two lonely solutions.

$$(n,x,y,z=u,v,w,p)$$

$$(2,3,4,4=1,2,6,41)$$

$$(2,3,5,5=1,3,7,59)$$

$$(2,3,5,7=1,1,9,83)$$

$$(3,1,5,5=2,3,6,251)$$

$$(3,4,6,9=1,2,10,1009)$$

$$(3,1,9,9=4,4,11,1459)$$

$$(4,9,16,16=8,13,18,137633)$$

$$(4,4,18,19=1,6,22,235553)$$

$$(4,8,16,21=6,13,22,264113)$$

$$(\color{blue}5,11,183,209=19,168,216,604015282243)$$

$$(\color{blue}5,481,782,788=321,772,808,622015202536001)$$

**My question.**

Can anyone find more solutions for $n=5$, or $n>5$, or give any insights, please.

Taxicab numbers can be generalised to any number of terms.

With credit to Duncan Moore, author of Generalised Taxicab Numbers and Cabtaxi Numbers where I found suitable solutions, I can contribute:

$$809^6+1851^6+2443^6=1277^6+1491^6+2489^6=253089021060516507491$$

$$511^6+2945^6+3285^6=1339^6+2457^6+3449^6=1909058509267895080811$$

A web search throws up this PDF entitled *Complexity of Finding Values of the Generalized Taxicab Number* which concludes that the problem is “at least supposed to be NP-Hard”.

Using Duncan Moore’s solutions, I’ve found that solutions for $n=5$ are not as rare as I thought earlier.

Here are a few of the smallest; many of these also have $x+y+z=u+v+w$.
