    Suppose otherwise, then there exists a k\in \mathbb{Z} such that:

    n^3-9n+27=k\times 81=k\times 9^2

    which implies that 9|n^3 which in turn implies that 3|n.

    Hence there exists a \lambda \in \mathbb{N} such that:

     27 \lambda^3-27 \lambda +27=3 \times k \times 27

    or:

     \lambda^3- \lambda +1=3 \times k

    Now consider the left hand side modulo 3.
