    Could you post a photo of the question, perhaps?

    If we knew what the question was I'm sure someone would be able to help.

    x = 3

    Just guessing!

    Strange how people come onto the forum, apparently desperate for help, and then disappear.

    If anybody else is stuck with a GCSE past/practice question, there is a search engine called "google". (www.google.com).
    If you type this into this search engine:
    "Edexcel 2019 Practice Paper 3 Question 23"
    You can find lots of resources which give you help on exactly this question.

    Nope, this page you are reading is the only one to reference this question. And we still don't know what it is.

    I don't think we'll ever know the question but @briancant thinks the answer is 3. It's reminiscent of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The answer was 42 but no one knew the question.

    Maybe we could invent our own questions.

    a^x + b^x = c^x where x is a positive integer.

    What is the smallest value of x for which the equation has no integer solutions?

    I have discovered a truly remarkable answer to this question which this box is too small to contain. Or something along these lines....

    I would like to circle back to the original problem and suggest the answer is a couple of pies.

    So the question must have been:
    "What's better than one pie?"
