After reading a question about a stone weight I've remembered something I read on the net a few years ago:

A dozen, a gross and a score
Plus 3 times the square root of 4,
Divided by 7,
Plus 5 times 11,
Equals 9 squared + zero, no more.

Have copied your post out in large font for the wall of my classroom. I know that at least some of my class will enjoy it as much as I have!

Ahhhh...the math limerick.
Here's how it looks in arithmetic expression:

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

Or if your html messes up your formatting:

[(12 + 144 + 20 + 3V4 ) / 7] + ( 5*11 ) = 9^2 + 0
