### Beal's Conjecture

What is the Beal's Conjecture's problem to prove?

### Re: Beal's Conjecture

The million dollar problem.

A, B, C, x, y, and z are integers and x, y, z > 2

A, B and C have a common prime factor.

Prove it is always true or find a counterexample.
Good luck!

Hi;
If I can prove it, will [blank] be impressed?

He will be flabbergasted! I would suggest trying something else though.

### Re: Beal's Conjecture

Fermat's was just a piece of Beals conjecture and it took over 300 years to solve. I think she will be too old for you by then.

What would you suggest?

I would suggest doing your schoolwork. Staying here and on brilliant. Eating your vegetables. Getting your sleep. Living a moral life. Honoring your parents. Continuing your Hindu tradition. No drinking, smoking, dope or modern music. Marrying a decent girl. Doing an honest days work...

### Re: Beal's Conjecture

It will be a good idea to make an old person happy. Don't you think?

Why would you suggest the following instead of the Beal's Conjecture?

### Re: Beal's Conjecture

I disagree with these:

Whats wrong with Beal's anyway?

It goes against the whole school of modern thinking.

I disagree with these:

That will be your choice. I can only say as an old man to a young man, "you will come to know I am right."

But by that time you will be an old man trying to convince yet another young man... Ad infinitum.

### Re: Beal's Conjecture

Thus is proved that the old man is thinking of an idea that is either deluded or thinking of too ideal a situation
