45 Everyday Math Equations for the Non-Math Major

Most real life phenomena can be solved with simple sarcasm.

X equals ?

In life, it's generally accepted that math sucks, at least for everyone who's not a scientist, doctor, or mathematician. There have been numerous times when doing math has broken the will of a young adult, sucking the life out of him or her with every theorem or function involving numbers. Doing math is sort of like watching Beauty and the Beast... only Beauty and the Beast had nothing to do with math, so it's a Disney classic. Then again, there has to be some equation(s) out there that actually makes me smile instead of thinking about how never to look at a number again.

Even though knowing the quadratic formula won't be useful until a serial killer runs up to you and is all like, "TELL ME THE QUADRATIC FORMULA OR ELSE I'M GONNA MURDER THE SHIT OUT OF YOU," doesn't mean you can't find out a lot by using it in everyday life. Fortunately, there are some equations out there that don't conjure up bad memories of wetting yourself during a math test, and I've got them here!
