Fermat's Last Theorem stated, in his words, "It is impossible to separate a cube into two cubes, or a fourth power into two fourth powers, or in general, any power higher than the second into two like powers." This category is for history, proof, and conjectures related to the theorem.
The Beal Conjecture
$75,000 prized problem pertaining to the Diophantine equation of the form A^x + B^y = C^z where A, B, C, x, y and z are positive integers and x, y and z are all greater than 2, then A, B and C must have a common factor.
