Solutions to polynomials in two variables

You may remember the quadratic formula for finding solutions to quadratic polynomials in one variable. It is natural to ask: Are there formulas like this for polynomials of higher degree? The answer, roughly speaking, is yes. Going further, one might ask: What about polynomials in more than one variable? Here, the answer is far more complicated, and involves geometry in what may seem a surprising way. One famous example of this type of polynomial equation is the Fermat equation xn + yn = zn.
