Because hippos are surprisingly dangerous, zoologists use the Pythagorean theorem to calculate the length of their backs.
This is called finding the hippotenuse.
The Pythagorean Theorem, Newton's Third Law and Bernoulli's Principle walk into a bar.
The bartender says, "I'm not going to get this joke aren't I?"
I have developed a truly marvellous demonstration of Fermat's last theorem ...
which this post is too short to contain
This joke may contain profanity. 🤔
Why don’t triangles have an SSA Congruence Theorem?
‘Cause that would be ass-backwards.
Ever hear of the Infinite Monkey Theorem?
It goes something like if an infinite number of Redditors typed away on keyboards, one of them will eventually type a complete day of work.
Three Squaws Were Each Preparing For The Birth Of Their First Child.
Three squaws were each preparing for the birth of their first child. The first squaw placed a large bear hide by a river, the second squaw placed an elk hide by a tree by a river, and the third squaw placed a hippopotamus hide by a path, near the river and the tree so that the three form...

My favourite Math pun
There were once 3 kingdoms that bordered the same lake. In the middle of the lake there was an island, and the 3 kingdoms had been fighting over it for years. No one seemed to be able to keep the upper hand for very long and no one had been victorious. The wars over this little island were very cost...
I met one of my beautiful Maths teacher yesterday
We greeted and she asked me directions to the State Bank of India. I told her make a 299 degrees turn and walk for 290 meters, then subtend the angle of X using Pythagoras Theorem and round it up to the nearest degree using tan ∆. From that point, draw a parabolic curve and walk 342 meters on its ma...
What do you need when you're constipated in math class?
There was a horse who was a genius at arithmetic...
...which it learned with no difficulty. Algebra was a breeze, and it could even prove theorems in Euclidean geometry. However, when someone tried to teach it analytic geometry, it would rear back on its hind legs, kick ferociously, neigh loudly, and make violent head motions in resistance.
My stats prof is so romantic...
He keeps talking about his Bayes' Theorem
A Programmer's Story
As an undergraduate, I was a Double E major. I studied physics, quantum mechanics, and Maxwell’s equations! I designed circuits! Hah! But does anyone call me Pierre the Electrical Engineer? NO!
As a master’s student, I studied mathematics. I learned and proved many beautiful theorems! I broke...
It's finals week and the only question on the test is "what is 2+2?"
A philosophy major writes a long eloquent response but doesn't bother to actually answer the question.
A math major makes a formal proof that 2=2 and that addition is commutative before using the squeeze theorem to prove that 4≤2+2≤4.
An engineering major knows the answer is 4 but writ...
