A Poem by Dave Brown

equation occasion


We met in columns where we both added

Your fraction together with mine             

It formulated a complete digital interaction                 

Into a no variable linear equation plus sign


So that we’d have no divisions or remainders

We multiplied our coefficiency of two

That accumulated result led to real numbers

A calculation with no fractions in view


With the square root of our algebraic interaction

No longer carrying uncompassed spherical geometry

It allows our formulas, postulates and theorems

To take our sum total far beyond infinity

In this vicinity

I loved maths in high school, I guess learning linear equations has finally paid off now! Phew!
Also, I notice that you progressed from the easier operations of addition to the ones which are more complex....was expecting calculus to rear its ugly head by the end. :))

LOL thankfully the equation had been solved before taking that plunge
I was good at maths at school but not this good 😀 My equations with real numbers are mostly left unbalanced for want of the right coefficients. The fractions become infractions and the sum total never tallies with what was originally estimated . Enjoyed deducing this one!
