@deathknight2 The square root of -1 is i. i is an imaginary number, and I hated learning that in algebra. :P

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.)

you cannot take the square root of a negative unless you are dealing with absolute values, but i think that would ruin the joke

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.

well it`s ambiguous because the summation symbol doesn`t have any indicies. WHAT ARE THE BOUNDS!?

The Sigma doesn`t really work; its more `I ate the sum of all pie"

Thats a Sigma, not and Epsilon. The greek letter Epsilon looks just like our E when it is capitalized.

i eight sum pi
I ate some pie

And to the people below me, that`s a SIGMA, not an Epsilon!

sq. rt (-1) = i "I"
2 ^3 = 8 "ate"
E, epsilon = sum "some"
pi symbol = "pie"

Now write 3.14 backwards and be amazed.

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?

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".

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.

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.

Yeah, we use it as `j` in engineering for the applicable maths that comes with it.

Freyr108, what jpatterson64 and ejp1087 said. We use j in circuits because i usually means current and it`d cause confusion.

I think I can phrase that better:

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

But only on my reference frame

@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 :)

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

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?

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

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

Dont have to be a maths nerd to work this out
√-1 = i
2^3 = 8
∑ = sum
Ï€ = pi

So, "I ate some pie".

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...

the square root of -1 is "i", 8 is ate, the sigma is the notation for summation, and pi is pie.
