The Beal Conjecture was formulated in 1997 and presented as a generalization of Fermat's Last Theorem, within the number theory´s field. It states that, for X, Y, Z, n_1, n_2 and n_3 positive integers with n_1, n_2, n_3> 2, if X^(n_1 )+Y^(n_2 )=Z^(n_3 ) then X, Y, Z must have a common prime factor. This article presents the proof for the Beal Conjecture, obtained from the correspondences between the real solutions of the equations in the forms A^2+B^2=C^2, δ^n+γ^n=α^n and X^(n_1 )+Y^(n_2 )=Z^(n_3 ). In addition, a proof for the Fermat's Last Theorem was performed using basic math.
