No honorable mention of The Futurama Theorem?

That was covered last time, in a rather poorly-titled article.

Seems 398712 + 436512 = 447212 + 1211886809373872630985912112862690. Looks quite a long way off to me. Such is the power of powers.

In the Homer Cubed segment of Treehouse of Horror VI, David Cohen slipped in 1782^12 + 1841^12=1922^12 among the equations floating around (which, if true, would disprove Fermat’s last theorem). Cohen has joked about Fermat’s last theorem before.

Actually, I have found an error in Wiles proof, but unfortunately the mark-up capabilities of the forums are not advanced enough for me to post it here.

Well, my windows calculator puts the 12th root of 1782^12 + 1841^12 at 1,921.9999999558672254029113283703. So yeah, it’s pretty close, but no cigar. The funny thing about exponentials is that the actual numbers work out to

1782^12 + 1841^12 = 1922^12 - 700,212,234,530,608,691,501,223,040,959
