Never mind. I briefly checked the proof of the OP. Hensel's lemma doesn't apply. Not every step can be obviously modified to the padic numbers. I'm still not bothering to deeply check the proof. Maybe if you write it down in a clean way with LaTeX...

I'd need to study the proof more indepth to make sure. But I'm not going to bother at this moment since there isn't even a final version, nor a clean file to read.

@michael if you want feedback that's what people need. A definitive and preferably markedup version of your proof. You've noted several times that I've stopped giving specific suggestions. It's because every time I ask you a technical question you ignore it and post yet another version of your proof. This is frustrating to me. I hope you take these comments to heart. Post an official version written clearly enough that we can all follow it line by line. Last edited by Maschke; June 16th, 2019 at 07:10 PM.

Yes Maschke, I understand your frustration because I have it from from a different perspective. When it became obvious that you did not understand what I thought were simple statements, I thought that I could use the nautilus construction to help explain it better. But it quickly became apparent that would not work either. The written proof has always been the same.The April 19th posting is in the form you requested. When you complained about that I rewrote by hand and submitted it May 6th, 2019.You complained about that. So given my past experience with your requests, how do I know if you will come up with another objection or not? Youngmath was able to read to at least line 4, where he found an error.I submitted the correction on June 6th, 2019.there's only a total number of 8 lines of equations. I have made a few attempts to convert the proof to Latex, but have not been successful to date. i will make another attempt.

Any forum or site or journal you ever show your proof to will demand clear markup. If you seek recognition, you will have to at some point make your peace with taking the time to learn $\LaTeX$. You can "Quote" any post on this site to see how they did their markup. That's the best way to learn, just grab the code from other people's posts. For example the Fermat equation is $a^n + b^n = c^n$. Just hit Quote to see how I did that. Last edited by Maschke; June 18th, 2019 at 08:06 PM.

Maschke Any forum or site or journal you ever show your proof to will demand clear markup. If you seek recognition, you will have to at some point make your peace with taking the time to learn LATEX. You can "Quote" any post on this site to see how they did their markup. That's the best way to learn, just grab the code from other people's posts. For example the Fermat equation is an+bn=cn. Just hit Quote to see how I did that. I did that but when i copied into the reply it was not translated into readable text. It still retained the $ sign. I tried Latex but am having trouble getting brackets right. The purpose for sending this anyway is that you asaid previously that you accepted this part of proof, but then said you didn;t knpow if it wqs right or not. You never did rewpond whether it was right or not. Would you now say whether it was right or not.

Can you please write out a complete argument so that your exposition stands alone? I cannot agree that I've ever accepted anything nor do I know what argument you are making. Please just say what your idea is and what you intend to show and why that proves FLT. Start from scratch, pretend this is your first post. Lay it out so that someone can understand what you are trying to say. * Also, are you trying to LaTeX here on this website? Or in some standalone LaTeX environment? The latter can be hard to get started on, whereas working in the composition window on this site generally works. ps  What does {}X mean? What is all that in the pdf? It looks pretty mangled at my end and since it's a pdf it must be mangled at your end too. You don't have to use LaTeX by the way, if that's giving you trouble. What people need is legibility. I can't discern your argument from this pdf. Perhaps others can. * "I did that but when i copied into the reply it was not translated into readable text. It still retained the $ sign." Please describe exactly what you're doing. Copied from where? Are you in Microsoft Word or something? Describe clearly your entire workflow so that we can debug your markup issues. * Also there is an incredibly cool site at https://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php where you enter markup (without the dollar signs) and it renders the LaTeX. You can use it to build up your exposition one little bit at a time. * And finally, some of this is coming back to me now. Your claim that c/d > 1 I believe I pointed out is false in general a while back. Can you please write a complete argument, clearly stating all your assumptions?
