let x'= |x| , y'= |y| and z'= |z|

then we have x'+y'+z'=12

so x'<12 and y'<12 and z'<12

since you are looking for the number of this points i think i can assume you mean points with integer coordinates.

since 0<x',y',z'<12

we have that x',y',z' are in the set {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11} which has 11 elements.

so x',y' and z' have 11 possibilities each,and so do x,y and z.

the number of such points is: 11*11*11=11^3=1331

hi gAr

oops! i think you're right.i forgot to take the condition x+y+z+12=0.i got the number of those which satisfy the equation x+y+z+12>0

Wow, are you from Middle East?

Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away. May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.

I believe anonimnystefy is from Serbia. Orthodox Christians tend to celebrate Christmas on the 7th of January (as per the Julian calendar, which we don't use anymore -- we use the Gregorian calendar). Other countries do the same, like Russia.
