Quinn + Tonik Vol. 10
fermat's last theorem
Who doesn't like a little mental athletics to start their week? Fermat's Conjecture was noted in the Guinness Book of World Records as "The Most Difficult Maths Problem" in existence. Partly due to the huge number of unsuccessful attempts at proving it in the three hundred and fifty eight (yes 358) years it went unsolved. Even those amongst us with brains which grow to epic Stephen Hawking speeds of computational power after three Quinn & Toniks can comprehend the enormity of this.
Humanity had managed to cross oceans, discover continents, have numerous revolutions, invent steam engines, looms, combustion engines, airplanes, penicillin, break the sound barrier, go to the moon and back (allegedly), dive deep under the oceans, and climb to heights that 747s fly with no oxygen. But not one person who had attempted this problem had ever solved it. Until 1995. 358 years after French mathematician Pierre de Fermat had scrawled it in the margins of a book. His 1637 chicken scratch said that he had a proof for a seemingly simple problem...but not enough room to write it.
Thus began the wild goose chase to prove both Fermat, and the theorem, right.
Sit down with a stiff one, and let those neurons start buzzing...
