Waring's problem concerns the determination of what is the maximum amount of nth powers needed to sum up to any integer. For example, no more than 9 cubes are ever necessary to add up to any integer: 2025 could be expressed as 253 \times 2^3 + 1^3, but it is much more easily expressed as the sum of the first nine cubes.
