Given: Point (3, -2, 5)

To find: the coordinates of 7 more points such that the absolute values of all 8 coordinates are the same

Formula used: Absolute value of any point(x, y, z) is given by,

$\sqrt{x^2+y^2+z^2}$

We need to make sure that absolute value to be the same for all points

In the formula of absolute value, there is square of the coordinates. So when we change the sign of any of the coordinates, it will not affect the absolute value.

Let point A(3, -2, 5)

Remaining 7 points are:

Point B(3, 2, 5) (By changing the sign of y coordinate)

Point C(-3, -2, 5) (By changing the sign of x coordinate)

Point D(3, -2, -5) (By changing the sign of z coordinate)

Point E(-3, 2, 5) (By changing the sign of x and y coordinate)

Point F(3, 2, -5) (By changing the sign of y and z coordinate)

Point G(-3, -2, -5) (By changing the sign of x and z coordinate)

Point H(-3, 2, -5) (By changing the sign of x, y and z coordinate)
