The product of the distinct primes in a number is called the
radical of that number. Notation: rad(). For example,
rad(22×34) = 2×3 = 6, rad(2×3×52) = 2×3×5 = 30.
I Three positive integers A,B, C are called ABC-triple if they
are coprime, A A + B = C
I Compute rad(ABC) and check whether rad(ABC) this inequality is true we say that we have an ABC-hit!
I Among all 15 × 106 ABC-triples with C ABC-hits.
I Among all 380 × 106 ABC-triples with C 276 hits.
Theorem: There are infinitely many ABC-hits.

with finitely many exceptions we have C .
