Of course you don't have a proof that my FLT proof is wrong. Nor does anyone else on this forum. Why don't you make yourself useful and find some other better mathematicians to look and see if they can find an error in the proof.

You seemed to acknowledge this error earlier, and now you're back to ... what, exactly? You haven't got a new proof and you already acknowledged the failure of your earlier proof.

In addition there have been a number of Mathematicians that have worked to show that there is no simple proof of FLT using algebra and that should translate into no proof by trigonometry as well. This is why you are getting so much resistance. Someone in this thread once asked you to disprove $\displaystyle a^3 + b^3 = c^3$. You haven't done so. If you could give the full argument about why this equation fails it will generate you some more support for your ideas. Dan

Senior Member Joined: Aug 2012 Posts: 2,426 Thanks: 760  I thought he was addressing Denis. But then he said, "Nor does anyone else on this forum.' I'd been under the impression earlier that I've made my point. Not only that ... I had a rare experience, that of getting through to an, let us say, alternative thinker. I rarely engage with FLT threads because of the likely futility of the enterprise. I was gratified that I was able to make a mathematical point and that the OP agreed that it refuted his proof. The OP's latest makes me doubt all that. Perhaps that didn't happen earlier at all. Or perhaps the OP got the point earlier but now isn't so sure. I await clarification from the michaelcweir.
