I was wondering if there's something similar to Fermat's Last Theorem but in this manner: sum series of n terms each raised to the power of n being equal to another term raised to the same power a1^n + a2^n + ... + an^n = b^n 1) a^2 + b^2 = c^2            2) a^3 + b^3 + c^3 = d^3                 3) a^4 + b^4 + c+4 + d^4 = e^4 could it be that these all have no solutions above n? so 1) no solution above 2 2) no solution above 3 3) no solution above 4 and so on? i have not tried this and not sure where to begin testing for this but just thought i'd post this.

i mean for 3 terms, there is no solution for powers above 3 4 terms no solutions for powers above 4, etc basically using the same principles of the fermat's last theorem but scaling it up. or maybe the solution cap isn't simply >n (where n is number of terms) but rather a different value on a different scale? so 1) a^2 + b^2 = c^2            2) a^3 + b^3 + c^3 = d^3                 3) a^4 + b^4 + c+4 + d^4 = e^4 but these are invalid 1) a^n + b^n = c^n n>2            2) a^n + b^n + c^n = d^n n>3                 3) a^n + b^n + c+n + d^n = e^n n>4 OR instead of linear growth, maybe 2) will cap at a higher n and 3) will also cap at a much higher n Last edited by Kensou77; May 3rd, 2016 at 01:59 PM.

I said this hypothesis is not true. Specifically you need each equation to solve. This task is very difficult. Divination will not help here.

The hypothesis may be valid and deserving exploration if there are known examples of a^3+b^3+c^3=d^3 a^4+b^4+c^4+d^4=e^4 etc.
