Quick math question...for 500 bits
-----------------------------------
X^n + Y^n = Z^n
Find one case, with X,Y,Z and n integers, and n greater than 2 for which this is true.

i guess if x,y and z were 0 and n was bigger than 2 it would be true... :roll:

first off this is Fermat's last theorem and it has been proven to that is is not true
second of all, homer since it is X,Y, and Z you should assume they are different numbers

aww....come on now martin, Fermat's Last Theorem? I would've expected something less conspicuous.....(doesn't really matter though, Catalyst or Bugz would probably get it anyways if it were a different question)

yeah, didn't it take that guy(was it Andrew Wales?) like 8 years to come up with the 130 something pages proof for Fermat's Last Theorem?

is it was actually proved?

Andrew Wiles asian.... didnt mr white talk to you about him? he gave us a story last year about one of his students going crazy cuz he thought he had the proof..

i never heard Mr.White talk about him, cause im not in his class.
lol, and to go crazy over some math proof.....i can only imagine two people right now, that would do that(SW and TTL), but then again, proving fermat's last theoreom guarentees $50,000(or was it $500,000?)

i think TTL would juss jump of a bridge if she proved it

would u give me 5000 bits if i proved fermat's last theorem rite here?

(-1)^3+(1)^3=0^3
so (-1,1,0) is a solution to x^3+y^3=z^3
did somebody say 500 BITS?!?!

yeah if anyone one is interested, pick any integer k and any positive p, (-k,k,0,2p+1) or (k,-k,0,2p+1) would work that is (a,b,c,n)

well yeah thast sortof obvious.. the exponent is odd and so the two terms cancel each other out and give you 0.

It's funny that if you make X,Y,Z polynominals of degree greater than 1, the proof becomes about a page in length. I'll post it for 200 bits.

i dont understand what you mean...
X,Y,Z polynominals of degree greater than 1
are you saying that there exists no polynomials f,g,h of degree greater than 1 such that
(f(x))^n + (g(x))^n = (h(x))^n
where n is an integer greater than 2?
and let me ask if it is your own proof
