just found it it's on a page called moonsighting.com (don't ask but I was trying to find out what sector of the lunar month we were in....!)


Just copied it across for you.....blew my brains!


This poem was written by Jon Saxton (an author of math textbooks).


((12 + 144 + 20 + (3 * 4^(1/2))) / 7) + (5 * 11) = 9^2 + 0


Or for those who have trouble reading the poem:


A Dozen, a Gross and a Score,


plus three times the square root of four,


divided by seven, plus five times eleven,


equals nine squared and not a bit more.


:shock:
