### Genius Game Show

Haven't written in a while because I've been preoccupied with this new game show on TV. It's on almost every night, and I think it's great. It has such an intellectual flare that I just can't get over, and it keeps me on the edge of my seat for the whole hour!

And now, because of inspiration from this game show, I intend to be famous, because I have stumbled upon a counterexample to Fermat's Last Theorem, a conjecture that mathematicians have been trying to prove for centuries.

Recall Fermat's Last Theorem: The equation

I start by attributing an unbiased ranking for the girls on Deal or No Deal?, and when their respective case numbers are concatenated together in decimal base, they form the counterexample

And now, because of inspiration from this game show, I intend to be famous, because I have stumbled upon a counterexample to Fermat's Last Theorem, a conjecture that mathematicians have been trying to prove for centuries.

Recall Fermat's Last Theorem: The equation

*a*^

*n*+

*b*^

*n*=

*c*^

*n*

has solutions in positive integers

*a*,*b*,*c*, and*n*only when*n*= 2 (and then there are infinitely many triplets*a*,*b*, and*c*which satisfy the equation); but there are no solutions for*n*> 2.I start by attributing an unbiased ranking for the girls on Deal or No Deal?, and when their respective case numbers are concatenated together in decimal base, they form the counterexample

*n*for which the triplet {

*a*,

*b*,

*c*} does have solutions.

I have discovered a truly marvelous proof for this statement, which, unfortunately, this blog is too small to contain. - PF
