Question: Why is this a mathematical limerick?
( (12 + 144 + 20 + 3 Sqrt[4]) / 7 ) + 5*11 = 9^{2} + 0 .
Answer:
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.
---Jon Saxton (math textbook author)
