1

Which, of course, translates to:

Integral z-squared dz

from 1 to the square root of 3

times the cosine

of three pi over 9

equals log of the cube root of 'e'.

12 + 144 + 20 + 3 \/4 2

--------------------- + 5*11 = 9 + 0

7

which reads as:

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.
