The relation an + bn  = cn for a, b, c and n being integers is valid for n being limited to 1 and 2.

For example:

31 + 41 = 71

242 + 72 = 252

Fermat’s last theorem was first stated by Pierre de Fermat, a 17th century lawyer and amateur mathematician. The proposition states that the equation an + bn  = cn where a, b and c are non-zero integers, has no solutions for n > 2.
