What is the easiest way to explain the Beale Conjecture to someone who isn't math literate?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

BEAL'S CONJECTURE: If Ax + By = Cz, where A, B, C, x, y and z are positive integers and x, y and z are all greater than 2, then A, B and C must have a common prime factor.

What exactly is Beale trying to extract or squeeze into his equation and what is it's practical application or outcome.If it could be proved,what is it's benefit to math or to anything?
