One Shot


Answer:
The first pic is a still from the movie Good Will Hunting which shows the theorem that Matt Damon (Will Hunting) solves (thinking it to be a homework problem). The second is a pic of George Dantzig, a mathematician.
Geroge Dantzig, as a student, had solved two famous unsolved problems in Statistics that his professor had written on the blackboard (thinking them to be homework problems). This incident is the inspiration for the scene in the movie.
