Fermat wrote in a book that he owned, "I have discovered a truly remarkable proof but this margin is too small to contain it," but most mathermaticians today feel that he was in error. The theorem stated that a^{n} + b^{n} = c^{n} has no possible solutions, where a, b, c and n are positive integers, and n is greater than two.
