Nice to see google on top of these things.

I'm a fan of the Little Theorem, myself.

...me too. To all who are interested too, there is a very pleasant book by Simon Singh that reports the history of the solution of this thesis in somewhat of a really interesting biography (in english it´s called Fermat´s Last Theorem, I believe). It´s a fabulous read, I think.

Cheers Fermat!

A very good book Axel. It was released in North America under the title Fermat's Enigma. Of course it's about that other, more famous, theorem.

I'd write down how interesting I find this thread, but the margin of this web page isn't large enough to contain it.

Ever have a student try that answer on an exam?

Nope.

I have had them change the question and answer the new question. I keep telling them that if they're going to change the question, they should change it to something really, really easy, like "1 + 1 = ?"
