As an engineering major this makes me moist
@The Real Question is, as a fellow engineering major, my girlfriend is getting laid tonight.
@Slayer9200, *high fives*
Sorry, didn't mean to slap your girlfriend so hard.

I checked the math. Turns out to be true.
Hate to burst everyone's bubble, but 3sqrt(4) can either be 6 or -6, making the final answer 81 OR 79.285714. However if the last line is tweaked to say "Is either 9^2 or 79.285714" it still works, at least mathematically.
@XiozTaschez, *nine squared
@XiozTaschez, hate to contradict you, but the phrase square root of four is colloquially used to refer to the principal square root, as most people are not mathematically savvy. To insist otherwise is technically correct, but pedantic.
@abecedarian, pedantic as it may be, it would still be the correct way to simplify this equation. From the 7th grade on up through college it was beaten into me that n-roots, where n is an even integer, will always have both a positive and negative answer. As I learned this in 7th grade Algebra, it somewhat disheartens me that math teachers would, in a sense, give up and introduce the concept of Principal Square Root instead of teaching the correct concept. I don't know when this concept was introduced, as I have never heard the term until you mentioned it in your reply. Alas, though, the concept is out there and you are just as technically right as I.
@XiozTaschez, I don't think math teachers gave up. In fact there are two different symbols for square root: one to specifically denote the principal square root, and another which includes positive and negative. This limerick uses the latter, which makes your response technically correct.
@abecedarian, well then I shall declare a technical victory! Pi for everyone!
I read sqrt as squirt. Makes things way more interesting.

As a math major I now know what a mixture of heaven and hell looks like.
