An issue of Scientific American noted that squaring the circle is "known to be impossible, and so any purported solutions can be rejected out of hand." So has Fermat's last theorem been proved, or has it not?
"Few results have as rich a mathematical history and as dramatic a proof as Fermat's Last Theorem," the Abel Committee said in a (http://www.abelprize.no/c67107/binfil/download.php?tid=67066) statement.
The algorithm to find Fermat point is obtained by the following properties (see Figure 2).
Finally, a Fermat member [a b c] is represented in the fraction sequence as a+b/c, or since we have assumed that a + b = 2x + 1, this fraction equals 2x+1/c.
Pero la verdad, senala el autor, es que Pablo no posee la capacidad teorica como para resolver a Fermat, "de hecho, no la tienen muchos que pretextan la circunstancia mexicana para refugiarse en una vida de mediocridad.
The Fermat's doodle has also a hidden message - "I have discovered a truly marvelous proof of this theorem, which this doodle is too small to contain." - which Pierre de Fermat famously quoted in margin of his copy of the Arithmetica by Diophantus of Alexandria in 1637.

For that reason, we are pleased to be working with Fermat because it has been able to demonstrate the ability to help us be fully compliant with risk management best practices,C[yen] said CEO of ASBB Yousif Taqi.
The main purpose of this paper is using the elementary method to study the estimate problem of S (Fn), and give a sharper lower bound estimate for it, where Fn = [2.sup.2n] + 1 is called the Fermat number.
