# Mystery number...

Number Theory Level 3

During a contest, Benedict, Bob, Brenda, Brian and Billy were asked to each write a number. They decided to write five consecutive positive integers $$p, q, r, s$$ and $$t$$ respectively such that $$p>q>r>s>t$$ according to their order of birth.

Not only was the sum of the five numbers a perfect cube, the sum of Bob, Brenda and Brian's number was a perfect square. Given that all five numbers were greater than 1 but less than 1000, find their sum.
