I'm trying to solve the next problem:
Trying to prove that for every $k$ there is an integer $n=n(k)$ so that for any coloring of the set $\mathbb Z_3^n$ of all $n$-dimensional vectors with coordinates in $\mathbb Z_3$ by $k$ colors, there are three distinct vectors $X$, $Y$, $Z$ having the same color so that $X_i+Y_i+Z_i\equiv 0 \pmod 3$ for all $1 \le i \le n$.
I guess I need to use SCHUR proof in a different way but I don’t know exactly how to determine the coloring function. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you very much!
