    Fermat's Last theorm


    I'm bored, so here's something random.

    Anyone here ever had an obsession with Fermat's "Last Theorem"? No? Well I have!

    Specifically, I'm obsessed by the fact that such a simple equation can have such an incredibly complex "proof". Just look at this thing... it's incredible: http://www.math.ias.edu/~anindya/fermat.pdf

    I wish I could understand this, but a man's got to know his limitations. I can't even get past the first page without getting lost. Perhaps they just made it up. I mean, it's so complex - how could you ever disprove it?

    As a high school math teacher this just makes my head hurt. Lol.

    Fiddling with Fermat's last theorem just because you are bored ?
    Kid ... never play with just anything that you can get your hands on. It could explode, burning you up.

    Fermat's last theorem is the E = MC^2 of Mathematics, and it took centuries before anyone could solve it.
    Finally Dr. Andrew Wiles did it.

    And this reminds me of Catalan's conjecture. Prove that 8 and 9 are the only 2 consecutive powers in the set of natural integers.
    Not sure if it has been solved as of 2016. Go check it out.
