The authors use motivic methods to analyse mirror symmetry for certain Calabi-Yau threefolds \(V\) defined by weighted Fermat equations in \(\mathbb{P}^4\). The main result is a one-to-one correspondence between motivic factors and so-called monomials for mirror pairs of such Calabi-Yau threefolds. This is established by counting the number of rational points for the reduction of \(Y\) at a prime number.
