A Conversation for Two - the Dichotomous Number

Fermat's last theorem

Post 1


So Fermat's theorem "only holds for two", but then in the notes it says "Well, it holds for n = 1, but that's trivial".

Given that trivial comes from trivium, 3, you have managed to get 1, 2 and 3 all in one place.

But maybe that is just my warped (and very geeky) sense of humour.

I like that. I'll try to mention trivium in the next entry in the series, "Four".

(just kidding).
