WIN $1,000,000! - Just solve Beal's Conjecture

Posted By: Morning Show · 6/5/2013 4:29:00 AM

A million bucks could be yours for answering one math problem correctly!  A Texas banker is upping the ante to $1 million for whoever solves a tricky problem that's been dogging mathematicians since the 1980s. The American Mathematical Society said $1 million will be awarded for the publication of a solution to the Beal Conjecture number theory problem. Dallas banker D. Andrew Beal first offered the Beal Prize in 1997 for $5,000. Over the years, the amount has grown. Beal is a self-taught mathematician and says he wants to inspire young people to pursue math and science.

Here you go:

BEAL'S CONJECTURE:  If Ax + By = Cz, where A, B, C, x, y and z are positive integers and x, y and z are all greater than 2, then A, B and C must have a common prime factor.
