Our Specialist Maths teacher, Warren, was very proud to present us with a well worked solution to the following problem. It was Question 26 on the Senior paper of the recent 2010 Australian Mathematics Competition.

**If m + n = 11 and m**^{2}** + n**^{2}** = 99, what is the value of m**^{3}** + n**^{3}** ?**
