      Dear All,
      Please any one send me Farmet's Last Theorem
      (Proof) for n=2 and n=4


      Kermit says:

      I presume you mean for n = 3 and n = 4.


      For n = 4, you might find it interesting to look at the integers mod 29.

      In mod 29, the only way two fourth powers can sum to a fourth power is if
      one of
      them is zero mod 29.


      In mod 7, the only way two cubes can sum to a cube is if one of them is zero mod 7.
