That is nowhere near a solvable equation.

Thanks for a LINK.

Fermat's Last Theorem states that no three positive integers a, b, and c can satisfy the equation a^n + b^n = c^n for any integer value of n greater than two.

Beal's conjecture states that if A^x + B^y = C^z, where A, B, C, x, y, and z are positive integers with x, y, z > 2, then A, B, and C have a common prime factor.

Got all that? Well you'll need to prove or disprove it, and have your work published in a leading mathematics journal to claim your prize.

Was in the process of adding. I think you'll get over it though.

z = (log(A^x+B^y))/(log(C))

So in other words the problem in the OP is not even the problem they are attempting to solve.

z = (log(A^x+B^y))/(log(C))



Now plug in that equation into the z variable.

Basically, to word it out, find 3 whole numbers that when cubed or greater have one number equal exactly half of the sum total?

Not even remotely close.

Yep, the prize has been out there for 15 years, I am sure some OT baller will knock it out in a day or two.

Obviously, since you didn't state the problem correctly.

Beal's Conjecture is a play on Fermat's Last Theorem. Take the equation A^x + B^y = C^z. Fermat stated that if x, y and z are all the same, then there is no positive integer solution where n > 2.

Beal's Conjecture (which is what the contest is about) states that if x, y and z are all > 2 (but not necessarily the same), then a solution is only possible if A, B and C have a common prime factor.
