Historical Note on $125\,000$ (One Hundred and Twenty-Five Thousand)

The second case of Fermat's Last Theorem, where the value $p$ in the equation $x^p + y^p = z^p$ divides one of $x$, $y$ and $z$, had been proved impossible for all values of $p$ up to $125\,000$, at the point at which Andrew Wiles finally proved it in $1994$.
