    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.

    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...

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

    So, "I ate some pie".

    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?

    sqrt(-1) is `i` in maths
    2^3 is 8
    last symbol is pi

    Took me a bit, I thought 2^3 was way more complicated than it really was. It`s just 8.


    Root -1 is imaginary. I.
    2^3 is 8. Ate.
    Sigma is "sum". Some.
    Pi. Pie.

    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?
