Can you solve the following equation?
½ = 1/x² + 1/y² +...+ 1/z²
All variables must be different, positive integers, and there must be a finite number of terms.

The best that my program can do by Charlie)
Come on, Charlie! I did that much and more with just my TI83: see my first post, the next term is 19026245
I was hoping for a program that would somehow try permutations, like use the 2, 3, 4, 5 but leave out the 6 and them stop creating the sequence if it reaches 10000 and try a new few starting numbers.
I established that you need the 2, but maybe it would try starting with subsets of {3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}
This wouldn't be guaranteed to find a solution, but it might.
