Beal conjecture

The Beal conjecture is the following conjecture in number theory: If A x + B y = C z, where A, B, C, x, y, z are positive integers with x, y, z > 2 A, B, C have a common prime factor. Equivalently, There are no solutions to the above equation in positive integers A, B, C, x, y, z with A, B, C being pairwise coprime and all of x, y, z being greater than 2; the conjecture was formulated in 1993 by Andrew Beal, a banker and amateur mathematician, while investigating generalizations of Fermat's last theorem. Since 1997, Beal has offered a monetary prize for a peer-reviewed proof of this conjecture or a counterexample; the value of the prize has increased several times and is $1 million. In some publications, this conjecture has been referred to as a generalized Fermat equation, the Mauldin conjecture, the Tijdeman-Zagier conjecture. To illustrate, the solution 3 3 + 6 3 = 3 5 has bases with a common factor of 3, the solution 7 3 + 7 4 = 14 3 has bases with a common factor of 7, 2 n + 2 n = 2 n + 1 has bases with a common factor of 2.

Indeed the equation has infinitely many solutions where the bases share a common factor, including generalizations of the above three examples 3 3 n + 3 = 3 3 n + 2, n ≥ 1. Furthermore, for each solution, there are infinitely many solutions with the same set of exponents and an increasing set of non-coprime bases; that is, for solution A 1 x + B 1 y =.
