# 1 million dollar prize to prove or disprove the Beal Conjecture

We know many of you are into Fermat's last theorem and thought you might be interested in the Beal Conjecture as well. Expanding the frontier of number theory probably isn't the easiest way to make a million bucks, or even the best reason to work on that kind of problem. That is an impressive prize though, here is the prize page from the American Mathematical Society.

There are 6(originally 7) unsolved conjectures known as the millennium prize problems and for solving each,the Clay Mathematical Institution offers a million bucks.The Poincare Conjecture is the only one that has been proved.

thanks a lot for giving such a great problem i'll surely give it a try

Maybe Fermat proved his last theorem using the Beal equation? (see if you can find out how)

Wait maybe we can use fermat's little theorem to turn it into a more simpler problem..
