In 1995, A, Wiles announced, using cyclic groups, a proof of Fermat's Last Theorem, which is stated as follows: If is an odd prime and x; y; z are relatively prime positive integers, then z 6= x +y: In this note, a proof of this theorem is oered, using elementary Algebra. It is proved that if is an odd prime and x; y; z are positive inyegera satisfying z = x +y; then x; y; and z are each divisible by :
