10/2/11 — today’s equation

by josh lubarr

(For background, see Equationizing.)

Back in the day, I’d have created today’s equation based on the fact that √2 is both 1.414… and -1.414…, so that

10 – (√2/√2) = 11

but that seems cheesy to me now.

Unfortunately, that still leaves us with an unsatisfying mix of options, like

1 = 2 – 1 * 1

or, if you take the digits out of order,

2^1 = 1^1^1

or even

2^0 = 1 = 1 = 1

Nothing too exciting, and I would hope anyone geeky enough to be interested in reading this would have found those.
