Super Safi’s Monday Morning Math Mayhem 06 – Pythagorean Theorem

Morning Mathematical Monsters & Maniacs!

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “M”)

 

Hi, I’m Super Safi and you may remember me from such stats and strategy posts as Kwik-E-Mart Farming and the advanced losing-to-win Superheroes battle strategy.

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing mathematical journey involving fractions, probability, Fermat’s last theorem, and hundreds of other aspects from the wonderful world off mathematics.

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing math Monday morning?

This week, we’re going to look at one of the most iconic quotes in cinematic history, that has appeared on the large screen, as well as on the small screen in a couple of The Simpsons episodes, and on the even smaller screen quite recently in Week 1 of our Valentine’s 2019 Tapped Out game.
