Honorable Pierre de Fermat was truthful. He could have squeezed the proof of his last theorem into a page margin. Fermat's last theorem has been proved on a single page. The proof is based on the Pythagorean identity sin cos 2 2 1 θ θ + = . One will first show that if n = 2 . c a b n n n = + holds, followed by showing that if n > 2 (n an integer), c a b n n n = + does not hold. Applying a polar coordinate system, let a b c , ,and be three relatively prime positive integers which are the lengths… CONTINUE READING
