COMMENTS

In the Fermat "equation" 252688188876561^3 + 363025382900625^3 = 399951361478656^3 the left side is 0.000000002% larger than the right side. However, the ones digit on both sides is the same, namely, 6.

4th powers of A229382, David S. Cohen's near-miss counterexample to Fermat's Last Theorem for exponent 12.
