Yes one problem was solved and they tried to give the man who solved it a million dollars, but he refused to accept it.

I remember the Millennium Prize Rewards. 7 problems with 1 million dollar price each. Only one has been solved so far.

ok, but you are trying to use numbers.. A B and C can be ANY and ALL numbers.. You can't just make it work once.. It has to work EVERY time.. This is at least 4 dimensional thought.. It's about logic..
The only point I see to the problem is expanding your thought process into higher dimensions..
This being said there is no solution.

If you can find one solution where A,B and C do not have same prime factor you have earned million.
Or you need to prove that absolutely in every case A,B and C have same prime factor if the solution fits the equation.edit on 7-6-2013 by Cabin because: (no reason given)

It is a mistake in the original article. x, y and z are powers of A,B and C respectively. A is not multiplied by x, but powered by x.
Million dollar problem: Beal Conjecture
Beal conjecture is generalisation of Fermat Last Problem, one of the most famous mathemathical problems.
Fermat´s last problem.
