Jawaharlal Sahu, a school teacher in Garhumaria village in Raigarh District of Chhatisgarh, has claimed to have solved the "Last theorem" conceived by the 17th century legendry French mathematician Pierre de Fermat. "Last Theorem" has remained unsolved for the last 300 years.Jawaharlal Sahu claims that after an intense research of 34 years he is able to prove the Last theorem of Pierre de Fermat which states that xn + yn = zn. This formula has no non-zero integer solutions for x, y and z when n > 2.According to Jawaharlal Sahu, the latest discovery may herald a new era in the number worlds. Fermat's Last Theorem, sometimes also called the Fermat-Wiles Theorem, is one of the most famous theorems in the history of mathematics. It states that: It is impossible to separate any power higher than the second into two like powers, r, using more formal mathematical notation.If an integer n is greater than 2, then an + bn = cn has no solutions in non-zero integers a, b, and c.
