Senior Member Joined: Feb 2016 From: Australia Posts: 1,830 Thanks: 648 Math Focus: Yet to find out.  The joke is just supposed to be "(some percentage) of people don't understand math". And the "(some percentage)" part is intended to be some expression that those who aren't familiar with math, find hard to understand. As to what that percentage actually is, I think is beside the point...

As (120)(120)(120)/((1)(1)(1/√2)(2/√2)) = 120³, the original expression evaluates to 120%.
