“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. I have discovered a truly marvelous proof of this and if you want to know what it is, you'll have to solve a series of clues - each more fiendish than the last...”
~ Pierre de Fermat

Fermat's Last Theorem is the single most important theorem ever, but nobody knows why. It is formally stated as: Hey, if I claim to discover some really stupid mathematical theorem and don't give the proof for it, then people will spend a shitload of time over the next forever years trying to prove it. Also, it was originally stated in Latin, which only compounded the problem.

After more than three hundred years, the mystery of the infamous Last Theorem postulated by Fermat was conclusively disproved by an unlikely bunch of unrelated silly people.

The Last Theorem was postulated by Pierre de Fermat, a famous lawyer and mathematician. Fermat's Last Theorem states that:

 “ it is impossible to separate any power higher than the second into two like powers ”

or, even more obscurely:

 “ if an integer $n$ is greater than 2, then the equation $a^n + b^n = c^n$ has no solutions in non-zero integers $a$, $b$, and $c$. ”

Other than its proven connection with the Apocalypse and the end of the universe, the Last Theorem is of little or, more precisely, no consequence.

Proofs Edit

This theorem has remained unproven only until recently. Mathematical pragmatism (the philosophy that getting laid is a mathematician's first priority) has discouraged the proof of this theorem, and the only known proofs of this theorem have only been accomplished by the omnipotent or discovered by accident.

It is possible to provide a truly remarkable proof but I'm afraid this website does not have enough space for it.
