Pierre Fermat was a mathematician who liked to pose difficult puzzles to other mathematicians once he knew the answer. Is it possible that he made a puzzle but that he actually did not know the answer to? If so, it has been one of the puzzles that has been intriguing mathematicians for centuries. He thought of it was when he was still a relatively young man, and wrote in a book he was reading at the time, Diophantus'
This was related to his conjecture that Has no non-zero integer solutions for The conjecture is obviously valid for |
