### Math Joke for Halloween

A joke about a graveyard, a dead person, and being frightened. All good things for All Hallow’s Eve.

A man was walking through the Alexander Nevsky Monastery when he heard someone say, “

x^{2}+ 2x= (x)(x+ 2).” Sure that his mind was playing tricks on him, he kept walking, but then he heard, “x^{2}+ 2x+ 1 = (x+ 1)^{2}.” He paused again, then heard, “x^{3}– 4x^{2}– 7x+ 10 = (x – 1)(x+ 2)(x– 5).” Concerned, he approached a cemetery worker. “Why do I keep hearing math equations?” he asked.“Oh, that’s Leonhard Euler,” said the worker. “He’s decomposing.”
