Any Math Nerds Out There? What`s This Mean? [Pic]

I feel like I"m missing out on a good joke--any math geeks about to decipher this t-shirt?

Male 9
I "Eight" Sum "Pi"

...and it was good lol.
Male 291
I kinda wish I was being trolled here but kind of don`t.....the "E" is not epsilon its capital sigma
Female 7
@deathknight2 The square root of -1 is i. i is an imaginary number, and I hated learning that in algebra. :P
Male 216
Technically, i 8 sum pi (taking the root of a negative results in an imaginary number, 2 cubed is 8, sigma means "the sum of" and, well, pi.)
Male 3
you cannot take the square root of a negative unless you are dealing with absolute values, but i think that would ruin the joke
Male 2,688
I 8 Sum Pi
Male 1,449
@tatripp Epsilon can represent SUM in math
Male 4,793
i ate sigma pie?
Male 697
i ate some pie
Male 1,196
what does Epsilon have to do with sum?
Male 91
i (imaginary number) 8 sum pi
Male 1
I ate some pie and it was good.
Male 41
imagine two cubes some pie and it was good!
Male 2,737
Nerds.That is all.
Male 174
Obviously, the bounds for "some pie" would be something like the sum of b_i for i = 0 to i = x, where x is < pie.
Male 174
well it`s ambiguous because the summation symbol doesn`t have any indicies. WHAT ARE THE BOUNDS!?
Male 35
The Sigma doesn`t really work; its more `I ate the sum of all pie"
Male 20
Thats a Sigma, not and Epsilon. The greek letter Epsilon looks just like our E when it is capitalized.
Male 3,842
i eight sum pi
I ate some pie

And to the people below me, that`s a SIGMA, not an Epsilon!
Female 52
sq. rt (-1) = i "I"
2 ^3 = 8 "ate"
E, epsilon = sum "some"
pi symbol = "pie"

Now write 3.14 backwards and be amazed.
Female 465
I ate some pie? LOL
Male 3,631
Sorry I-A-B`ers, I don`t think it has anything to do with sex...
Male 3,631
The -1 in the square root? That equals, `i,` an imaginary number ("I"). I believe 2^3 equals `8` ("Ate"), E = epsilon but I`m not sure how that fits in here (again, not resorting to google) and "Pi" - obviously. So I think he ate himself some Pie! Anyone who can tell me where the E fits in?
Male 208
Couldn`t figure it out. The problem with math nerds is that we have seen really advance mathematics so we immediately begin thinking from the top. We have to remind ourselves to "keep it simple stupid".
Male 626
I get straight D`s in math and I understood that..
Male 1,586
I laughed, but I was starting to wonder if "sum" was supposed to be pervy and meant vag. I need to get my head out of the gutter.
Male 914
I`m pretty far from a math nerd, and I figured out in ten seconds that it was "I ate some pie".
Male 1,293
What self-respecting nerd would have any hesitation understanding that?
Female 3,726
LOVE this! I got it right away. Is this on mental floss?
Male 4,546
Took me a bit, I thought 2^3 was way more complicated than it really was. It`s just 8.

[spoiler]
Root -1 is imaginary. I.
2^3 is 8. Ate.
Sigma is "sum". Some.
Pi. Pie.
[/spoiler]
Male 257
Idk what the first word is but the last 3 are ate some pie...
Male 391
i eight sum pi
Male 25,417
Very nice
Male 550
Thought i was a math nerd too.
Only found "some pie"
Congrats to those who found the whole sentence
Male 931
Yeah, we use it as `j` in engineering for the applicable maths that comes with it.
Female 2,674
Freyr108, what jpatterson64 and ejp1087 said. We use j in circuits because i usually means current and it`d cause confusion.
Male 2,516
I think I can phrase that better:

8 : { pi, e } -> (0,0,0,0)

But only on my reference frame
Male 41

Male 542
nice
Male 6
@Freyr108 sqrt(-1) can either be called i or j depending on what you`re doing. In this case I would guess it means i :)
Male 314
Well it looks like Gerry`s the only one to read it correctly.
Female 1
Engineers typically use j while scientists use i
Male 203
@ lillian isn`t squareroot -1 i not j?.... therefore, I ate some pie
Male 177
Haha, love this.
Female 2,674
I got "j 8 sum pi" and was wondering who Jay is, because we use j in circuits D:
Male 10,855
Nom nom nom
Male 40,304
Nerd-shirt for sure!
Male 934
I was like, "What does I ate sigma pie mean?" Then I saw the comments :p.
Male 10,440
I ate some pie.
Female 737
I 8 (Sum) pi.
Male 137
i couldn`t read it because I didn`t know how to read the sum thing in english :(
Female 833
WANT.
Male 7,813
not even a math nerd here, but i actually understood it. I feel a little proud.
Male 600
i eight (sum of the) pie
Male 422
Sigma (sideways M) is used for summation (sum)
sqrt(-1) is `i` in maths
2^3 is 8
last symbol is pi

i ate sum pi
Male 365
I 8 all the Pi
Male 1,010
Tried to solve it but it made no sense to me :-p I thought the Greek symbol was "sigma"...? 2x2x2 is eight, that`s simple - everyone knows the pi symbol TOO, but "eight (ATE)sigma pi"? And the square root of minus one... is that valid?
Male 39,561

The shirt really says " Forever a Virgin "
Male 554
i didn`t get a slice :(
Male 17,512
i eight sigma (sum) pi
Male 606
I haven`t had a math class in over 10 years and I still got this - it`s not that tricky.
Male 2
i guess it means: i ate some pie (and it was good)
Male 2,419
woops, should have pressed refresh sooner!

nevermind me.
Male 2,586
I ate all the pies and it was good?
Male 977
I ate somma pie and it was good???
Male 2,419
i ate sum Pie...

square root of one, 2 to the power of three, Sum, Pi
Male 599
j 8 sum pi? I don`t get it!
Male 815
I ate some pie
Male 176
i 8 sum pi... and it was good
Male 178
i 8 some pie
Male 9
I ate some pie. Square root of negative one is an imaginary number (i) 2^3 is 8 the other is the symbol for summation, so sum. And...Pi. i 8 sum pi
Male 29
i 8 sum pi = i ate some pie
Male 1
Square root of negative 1 is called i, 2 to the 3 is 8, sigma is the sum symbol, then thats the greek letter pi

I ate some pie
Male 677
Tawting bumcheeks, all the symbols came out different...
Male 677
Dont have to be a maths nerd to work this out
âˆš-1 = i
2^3 = 8
âˆ‘ = sum
Ï€ = pi

So, "I ate some pie".
Male 39
i 8 sigma pie?
Male 15,184
Oh, I am preceded by many many math nerds
Male 15,184
I ate some pie
Male 1
i eight sum pi. and it was good.
Male 18
"i 8 sum pi" - I ate some pie...
Male 358
i 8 sum pi
Male 2,033
Or possible "I" ate some pie...I think I put too much thought into the implications of the square root of -1, which comes up in theological debates. Anyways...
Female 77
I ate some pie
the square root of -1 is "i", 8 is ate, the sigma is the notation for summation, and pi is pie.
Male 2,033
God ate some pie...

....and it was good.
Male 9
pretty much

i 8 sigma(sum of) pi
Male 598
i dont know the math, but im going to guess its "I ate a pie and it was good."
Male 13
I ate some Pie...and it was good.
Male 4,593
Not positive, but I think it says "I ate some pie, and it was good"
