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)

**Presentation Suggestions:**

Challenge students to invent their own math limerick!

**The Math Behind the Fact:**

It is fun to mix mathematics with poetry.
