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... Rolling Eyes

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?

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
