Have I found a novel way of expressing Fermat's last theorem as follows? N = nt{ K.A^(3p)} where N is the number of primitive triples a, b, c and a^p = b^p +c^p and a all values up to A. (K is about .155, 0.152929 for p =1 and 0.159155 for p = 2) For example, this gives for a up to 10,000, P = 1 N = 15292928 (actually 15198740) and for a up to 1000 p = 2 N = 318 (actually 319) p > 2 N = 0 with any values for A and K apart from infinity.

For p =2 K = 1/2.pi according to Alon Amit in Quora. For p = 1, I get K about 0.152. with A = 1,000,000 n = 151,981,776,195 For p = >2, N = 0 as long as K is less than one. I wonder whether there is a theoretical relationship between p and K? Last edited by skipjack; March 29th, 2019 at 06:13 PM.

Sorry I've got that wrong. Too old (91) and late at night. N = K.A^(3p) is what I consider to be logical based on extensive examination of a = b + c and a^2 = b^c + b^c. Then for p = 3 we get N = K where N is the number of relatively primitive triples a, b and c. No idea what K is for p > 2 except perhaps always less than one.
