Solve This Math Problem and Win $1 Million

  • Print

Until today I had never heard of The Beal Conjecture Number Theory math problem.  It's a stumper.  Mathematicians have been working on it for 30 years.  So far, none have found the solution.

Now a Texas banker is offering $1,000,000 to the first person who can come up with the right answer.

The Beal Conjecture goes like this:  If Ax +By = Cz , where A, B, C, x, y and z are positive integers and x, y and z are all greater than 2, then A, B and C must have a common prime factor.

Seeing as I didn't do too well in algebra...and never advanced to calculus, I have no prayer of winning the money.  However, since I know we have some great minds here in the Wichita area, there is a chance one of you reading this might have the elusive answer.
