```> Use the Backsubstitution -> True setting for Reduce[]

Darn!  Yep!  Right there in help under Reduce.
Thank you very much.  I think I've been confusing this with the
"VerifySolutions" option under Solve.  I now understand my mistake.  Can't
believe I've missed this all this time.
Thanks again.

equ = {a + b + c == 3, a^2 + b^2 + c^2 < 10,
a^3 + b^3 + c^3 == 15, a^4 + b^4 + c^4 == 35};

sol = {ToRules[Reduce[equ, {a, b, c},
Backsubstitution -> True]]};

Simplify[a^5 + b^5 + c^5 /. sol]
{83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83}
