Ratio by Leigh Mercer

A dozen, a gross, and a score
Plus three times the square root of four
Divided by seven
Plus five times eleven
Is nine squared and not a bit more.

Leigh Mercer
1893–1977

    ratios are HUGE when it comes to creating simulations…. If I didn’t have ratios there would be no way of creating a comparison of anything which wouldn’t allow me to see the experiment be simulated
