Finally, if you really are interested in mathematics, you can stick with the program long enough to learn what a proof really is. A proof that some thing cannot be done does NOT mean that we're just not clever enough, or if we keep trying, we'll get it. A proof of non-existence is absolute. You will not solve this particular problem. There may be a few special cases that you can solve, but you have not solved the general case. This is because it is known that it cannot be done.
