Written by 17th-century mathematician Pierre de Fermat, Fermat's theorem has long puzzled other mathematicians. It states that while a square of a whole number can be broken down into two other squares of whole numbers, the same cannot be done with cubes. In 1995, a British mathematician working at Princeton University claimed to have solved the question. This account examines the theorem from Greeks to modern science.
