## Can you solve it? The funniest jokes in maths

An Irish professor walks into a bar

UPDATE: the solutions can be read here

What do you call an engaged toilet on a Jumbo jet? A HYPOTENUSE!

The Theory of Relativity in a nutshell – time spent with your relatives seems longer.

Don’t knock innumeracy; my girlfriend is innumerate and we have wonderful threesomes.

These one-liners are hand-picked classics from Des MacHale, a legend in the world of mathematical humour. Emeritus professor of maths at University College, Cork, he is the author of more than 70 books, mostly of maths, puzzles and jokes.

MacHale has selected today’s puzzles, below. The first four are standard word or number conundrums, while the remaining five are lateral thinking puzzles, a MacHale speciality and a crowd-pleasing genre I feature too infrequently in this column.

Some require you to think like a novelist, conjuring up a believable situation that results in the relevant scenario. Others are misleading you by presenting a word or phrase that can be interpreted in more than one way. Take note.

1. A rich woman dies and leaves her entire fortune of two million pounds between a number of lion tamers. How much did each lion tamer receive?

2. Punctuate this sentence to reverse its meaning: A SMART DOG KNOWS ITS MASTER.

3. What is never odd or even ?

4. Make this equation correct just by moving the digits about: 26 = 74.

5. Two objects perform the same task. One has many thousands of moving parts while the other has no moving parts. What are they?

6. Why did a person buy an object they didn’t want for £1 and throw it away a few minutes later?

7. Why did a man tighten the lids on all the jars in his house and put them in the fridge?

8. In a locked cabin high up on the side of a mountain, five dead bodies are found. How had they all died?

9. Why was a person standing at a bus stop with an ordinary kitchen chair in their arms?

I’ll be back at 5pm UK with the solutions. Meanwhile, NO SPOILERS! Instead, please discuss your favourite lateral thinking puzzles and post your favourite mathematical jokes.

Des MacHale is an algebraist, with more than 100 academic papers in refereed journals. Yet he gained fame early in his career as a humorist. In 1976 he wrote the Book of Kerryman Jokes , which went on to sell half a million copies in Ireland.

He has written many other joke books, including a compendium of Boris Johnson jokes . His prolific output also includes four books on the English mathematician George Boole, who lived in Cork, and many books of puzzles.

MacHale’s two main interests – maths and humour – merge in his most recent book, Comic Sections Plus, an updated edition of his classic book of mathematical wit. “I would have humour lessons in all schools,” he says. “Logic and riddles are basic links between mathematics and humour; mathematics is ultra logical and humour turns logic on its head.”

His 20 books of lateral thinking puzzles are co-written with Paul Sloane . “I am hopeless at solving them but good I think at making them up,” he says. “Everybody enjoys logical thinking and being the first to get a solution.” On that note, how are you all getting on…?

Thanks to Des MacHale for today’s puzzles. You can buy his magnum opus Comic Sections Plus : the Book of Mathematical Jokes, Humour, Wit and Wisdom here .

I set a puzzle here every two weeks on a Monday. I’m always on the look-out for great puzzles. If you would like to suggest one, email me .

I’m the author of several books of puzzles, most recently the Language Lover’s Puzzle Book. I also give school talks about maths and puzzles (online and in person). If your school is interested please get in touch.

## 13 Jokes That Every Math Geek Will Find Hilarious

Back when the internet was young, the primary users were its builders, math and tech-oriented academics spread around the country.

As a result, math jokes have an elemental role in the history of the internet.

From the earliest Usenet threads to the techiest subreddits, geeky math jokes — some implicit swipes at less-pure disciplines, other puns or plays on words of different concepts — have been a major part of the modern history of math.

What's more, these japes also have the effect of making those who didn't get the joke to look into what makes it funny, teaching people some of the more obscure concepts.

Here are just a few of the best ones. Where necessary, we'll do the unthinkable and the tacky and explain the joke.

## JOKE #1

Three statisticians go out hunting together. After a while they spot a solitary rabbit. The first statistician takes aim and overshoots. The second aims and undershoots. The third shouts out "We got him!"

Source: chjilloutdamnit / Reddit

Two random variables were talking in a bar. They thought they were being discrete but I heard their chatter continuously .

Source: armchairdetective / reddit

Explanation: When you roll a die, you either get a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. Since there are a finite number of possibilities, the statistic involved is called a discrete random variable . When you select any real number from between 0 and 1, there are an infinite number of possible draws. The statistic involved is called a continuous random variable.

## JOKE #3

There was a statistician that drowned crossing a river... It was 3 feet deep on average.

Source: anatiferous_outlaw / reddit

## 246-You / Flickr JOKE #4

Write the expression for the volume of a thick crust pizza with height "a" and radius "z".

Source: Reddit

Explanation: The formula for volume is π · (radius) 2 ·( height). In this case, pi · z ·z ·a.

## JOKE #5

A: "What is the integral of 1/cabin?"

B: "log cabin."

A: "Nope, houseboat--you forgot the C."

Explanation: We're treating "cabin" is a variable.

The integral of 1/x is log e (x).

However, since it's integration, you've got to add a constant.

So ∫(1/cabin) = log e (cabin) + c, or "a log cabin plus the sea."

Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?

A: The answer is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.

Explanation:

This is a common refrain found in mathematics texts.

It is widely considered a cruel professor's malicious cop-out by particularly lazy students of mathematics.

## JOKE #7

Q: How many mathematicians does it take to change a light bulb?

A: One: she gives it to three physicists, thus reducing it to a problem that has already been solved.

Source: MathOverflow

Explanation: Mathematicians try to reduce an unsolved problem to a form which has already been solved before. Once that's done it's considered complete, as the previously derived formula is taken as written.

There are many light bulb jokes about physicists. Finding several are left as an exercises to the reader.

## JOKE #8

A physicist, a biologist, and a mathematician are sitting on a bench across from a house. They watch as two people go into the house, and then a little later, three people walk out.

The physicist says, "The initial measurement was incorrect."

The biologist says, "They must have reproduced."

And the mathematician says, "If exactly one person enters that house, it will be empty."

Source: Reddit

## JOKE #9

The B in Benoît B. Mandelbrot stand for Benoît B. Mandelbrot.

Explanation: The Mandelbrot set is a fractal. As you zoom in on portions of the fractal, you ee a self replicating image. So the infinite paradox in the joke is a shoutout to the problem. Here's an example of what we're talking about with a gif of zooming in on a point of infinite complexity in the Mandelbrot set:

## JOKE #10

Infinitely many mathematicians walk into a bar. The first says, "I'll have a beer." The second says, "I'll have half a beer." The third says, "I'll have a quarter of a beer." The barman pulls out just two beers. The mathematicians are all like, "That's all you're giving us? How drunk do you expect us to get on that?" The bartender says, "Come on guys. Know your limits."

Explanation: This is a reference to a converging infinite series.

The limit of this:

from n=0 to ∞ Σ (1/2 n ) = 1 + 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + ... = 2

## JOKE #11

An infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar. The first one orders a beer. The second orders half a beer. The third orders a third of a beer. The bartender bellows, "Get the hell out of here, are you trying to ruin me?"

Explanation: This is another hilarious reference to an infinite series — the harmonic series — which is not convergent but instead diverges to infinity.

from n=1 to ∞ Σ (1/n) = 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/4 + ... = ∞

See a full explanation in this slideshow >

## JOKE #12

When a statistician passes the airport security check, they discover a bomb in his bag. He explains. "Statistics shows that the probability of a bomb being on an airplane is 1/1000. However, the chance that there are two bombs at one plane is 1/1000000. So, I am much safer..."

Source: Andrej and Elena Cherkaev

Explanation: While this statistician is correct that the joint probability there are two bombs on a plane is 1/1,000,000, his bringing one on doesn't change the prior probability that there is still a 1/1,000 chance of his flight being the one with a random bomb.

Also, the TSA is not known for its logical prowess .

## JOKE #13

What do you get when you cross a mosquito with a mountain climber?

Nothing. You can't cross a vector and a scalar.

Explanation: A vector is a mathematical entity with both magnitude and direction in any number of dimensions. You can take the cross product of two vectors to form a new vector, similar to multiplication of real numbers.

A scalar is just a real number, a directionless magnitude in vector space. You cannot take a cross product of a scalar and a vector.

Hence, you can't cross a mosquito (disease vector) and a mountain climber (a scalar).

That is one terrible pun. I'm sorry.
