**If you have 4 pencils and I ate 7 apples, how many pancakes will fit on the roof?****Purple, because aliens don't wear hats.**

Is this the way how you see maths? Then you probably won't crack up while being told a maths joke. But are there really some funny ones? Even for non-mathematicians?

Yes they are - I've done the research for you - prepare to laugh =) (At least a bit.)

Unrivalled number one:**John has 32 candy bars. Then he eats 18 candy bars.****What does John have now?**

**Cavities. John has cavities.**

This also a way how to explain what's maths:**Maths: the only place where people buy 60 watermelons and no one wonders ****why.**

Another special maths problem:**Think of a number between 0 and 10. Add 32 to it. Multiply the sum by 2 and then subtract 1.****Now close your eyes.**

**It's dark, isn't it?**

(Don't) try this with your teacher:**"Find x."****"Why? Do I look like a pirate searching for a hidden treasure?"**

But if you're still fighting that bloody x, just make yourself clear:**Dear maths, I'm sick and tired of finding your "x". Just accept the fact that it's gone. Move on, dude.**

Romans nailed that anyway thousands of years ago:**Romans didn't find algebra very challenging because x was always 10.**

Still didn't find any of them funny? If not, I don't blame you, because **5 out of 4 people have a problem understanding jokes about maths =))**

So forget x for a while and enjoy the rest of the day.
