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.

Argo,

Please help me.

For me, the solution on the left side of the equation doesn't = 81.

2Pi is easier = 6.28 etc.

PS: I still remember George Washington's birthday: the square root of 3 = 1.732/1732.

Pi is not easy. As a teenager we memorized it out to 32 places - can't remember why....here it is simplified to 15:
3.14159265359

Use parentheses in the last 2 terms on the left (5 x11). Then it equals 81.

OK, I get it:

{(12 + 144 + 20) + 3(2)}/7 + 5 X 11 =

(176 + 6)/7 + 5 X 11 =

(182/7) + 5 X 11 =

26 + (5 X 11) =

26 + 55 =

81

It doesn’t require parentheses. You always do multiplication or division before addition or subtraction. Unless the addition / subtraction part of the problem is it’s self contained in parentheses then those parts are calculated first.

This is Miller we’re talking about here Ted. I would’ve thought something more like this.

There once was a man from Tennessee
Who believed that the Bible didn’t prohibit slavery.
No matter how many of us were shocked, no matter how facocked,
Nor how much he was nudged, he never budged,
From what he thought what was In the scripture,
notwithstanding that a lot of us had a completely different picture.

Don’t quit your day job. Your poetry sucks worse than your politics.
