# Mathematical Limerick [closed]

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.

Question $1$: Does this limerick actually work?

Question $2$: Can you find a better one?

Hint: $$((12+144+20)+(3 \cdot √4))/7 + (5 \cdot 11) = 9^2+0$$.

• I am sorry to whoever edited first, but you cannot remove the zero on the RHS. It is the author's intention to put the zero to represent and not a bit more Mar 11, 2016 at 2:21

• By the way, I am quite new to math.stackexchange and I have probably broke about twenty unspoken rules.

Let me try a very simple one,

fifty and a sixty
is not a seventy
nor a ninety
but a twenty
below a hundred and thirty.

• Good job, Win Vineeth!
