Math Limerick

Literature Text

A dozen, a gross, and a score,
Plues three times the square root of four,
Divided by seven,
Plues five times eleven,
Is nine squared, and not a bit more
Dozen = 12
Gross = 144
Score = 20

12+144+20 = 176
176+3(2) = 182
182/7 = 26
26 + 5(11) = 81
81 = 9^2

Lol. Ok. I'm going to have to go do math now, to make sure this is right. Very clever. Especially in making me go do math.

This is pure genius and I love it! :iconhearteyesplz:

This just made my day.  I'm gonna memorize it for those time when I need to sound really smart.

(I think you might have misspelled "plus," though.)

Do you imagine how long it took him to write it?

I have no idea...some people actually have lots of time on their hands, and this is what they do.

Deepest limerick ever :P
JuciVegeSC's avatar
… but a REAL limerick is supposed to have a city or place as the last word of the first line and to be about something that's funny in a much lower way. If you wanna go with the rules of the art. Maths are awesome though. I like this!

On my way to Sidney , I found the mathematics here pretty. Needless to say on a cloudless day even algebra, square roots, and trigonometry sound good in Sidney bay.

{MEH, labored the last bit!}
