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

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 Suman Sir be impressed?

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

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...

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?

You asked me to suggest something. That is something.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

I disagree with these:

Continuing your Hindu tradition. No drinking, smoking, dope or modern music.

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."

Perhaps..

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

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