10/6/11 — today’s equation

(For background, see Equationizing.)

Now we start getting into the dates that are a little more challenging, which is nice.

Yes, of course, we can change the order and get

6^0 + 1 = 1 + 1

but it would be awfully nice not to have to do that. We can include the year, which yields the obvious

√(1^0 * 6) – 2 + 1 = 1

but I’m not so big on that one either. And there’s also

1^0^6 = 1 * 1

which ignores the 6, which is also not so great.

All equations, but none too elegant.
