I know many of you love mathematics so I thought I'd share.

I can't love math, I try but I just can't...it hates me.

I can't believe they left out the most important business equation of all!

Assets = Liabilities + Owner's Equity

I am surprised that E=mc^2 is down the list at 13. Unsurprisingly Pythagoras's Theorem is at the top.

Onward, my faithful steed!

Cool.
Is the Mandelbrot Set in there somewhere ? Don't know enough formal math to even know the answer, but if it's not there it should be.
Also Paul Dirac's equations and the Fibonacci sequence maybe should be on the list ?

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

I'm still working on my multiplication tables Blink

I understood math up to Trig then Calc came around and... SQUIRREL!
