• ## Yes, and it was actually \$700k.

The Abel Prize is awarded for outstanding scientific work in the field of mathematics. What better person to award it to than the man that solved an equation that stumped the brightest minds for 379 years? Besides, actors/actresses can earn more than that for a single television episode--is that worth it?

• ## Anything that difficult deserves a reward

Solving a math problem that has eluded mathematicians for 300 years is a huge accomplishment. With the development of calculus and a better understanding of many aspects of math in that time frame we have made tremendous leaps in our mathematical knowledge. For a problem to have remained unsolved for all that time means it was extremely difficult and should be rewarded. Considering how many mathematicians have not solved it, \$300,000 sounds like a relatively small number.

• ## It can advance society

Yes, solving a math problem that old is worth more than 300K, because it has the potential to advance society. That math problem could solve a big problem in society. Medicine and transportation, only to name two, wouldn't work if we didn't have math. It sends a good message to others to work on math.

• ## Other resolutions has cost the same and is worth it

Fermat's Last Theorem indicates there are no whole number solutions to the equation xn + yn = zn when n is greater than 2. For people, like me, who do not understand any such mathematical statement only seems like ramblings of an institutionalized person might consider that amount a bit extravagant. I believe such ramblings are a cornerstone of success in needed advancement of mankind. At some point, this answer may be have higher value than the one placed on it currently.
