I am thinking of a famous formula related to number theory, but I have reworded it (this may not be original to me -- I don't know). Can you name the theorm:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If a, b, c and n are positive integers, then

[tex] a^{n}=\int_{b}^{c}n{x^{n-1}}dx [/tex]

has no solutions for any [tex] n > 2 [/tex]. Maybe we can submit our answers in white font letters!

Enjoy,
