Let N be the number of balls in each urn, W the number of white balls in urn 1, b and w the number of black and white balls in urn 2, n > 2 the number drawn from each urn. With my interpretation in #73 of the problem we get:Huh?

(W/b+w)

^{n}= (b/b+w)

^{n}+ (w/b+w)

^{n}.

Multiplying by (b+w)

^{n}we have W

^{n}= b

^{n}+ w

^{n}which is impossible for n > 2 by Fermat's (Wiles') Theorem.
