## A Math Limerick

Most people think that math and poetry are polar opposites. This, however, is not true. Take, for instance, this mathematical limerick:

$\frac{12+144+20+3\sqrt{4}}{7}+(5*11)=9^{2}+0$

What? This doesn’t seem to be a limerick to you? Let’s translate the formula into prose…

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.

See? Math and poetry can be one and the same. It’s just take a little work and some understanding 😛
