Like Fermat's Last Theorem. That was famously claimed to have been proved by the brilliant mathematician

What he'd discovered, assuming he wrote it down elsewhere, was never found. Some said it was like he'd buried a magnificent treasure, but never left anyone a map."I have discovered a truly remarkableproofof this theorem which this margin is too small to contain."

His handwritten notes in the same textbook made many other similar claims. And Fermat was always 100% right: everything else he stated was later proved by mathematicians, gradually and systematically, in the centuries that followed.

But not his 'Last' Theorem. The 'missing proof' kept the world's finest minds busy for generations. No-one could figure out what Fermat had found.

Eventually, the English mathematician Andrew Wiles, who'd been obsessed with the challenge since he was a child, solved the enigma — 358 years later. It was highly complex, and took up 129 very dense pages. The math was so abstruse, advanced and conceptual that very few other mathematicians in the world were qualified to understand it.

Now, what we need is Fermat's
