Anyone seen a mathematical Limerick?
The British wordplay and recreational mathematics expert Leigh Mercer (1893–1977) devised the following mathematical limerick:
(12 + 144 + 20 + 3 x41/2)/ 7 + ( 5 × 11 ) = 9 2 + 0
In English this reads as:
A dozen, a gross, and a score
Plus three times the square root of four
Divided by seven
Plus five times eleven
Is nine squared and not a bit more.
