Rapper loves math

By Murray Bourne, 16 Oct 2006

Lloyd Banks

From MTV (original no longer available):

"Lloyd Banks often hits fans with an assortment of witty one-liners and clever punch lines. But the G-Unit rapper took to his alma mater, August Martin High School in Jamaica, New York, last week, with a much more straightforward message: Get your education. Banks donated $10,000 to the school library and offered words of encouragement to an auditorium full of students:

'I wanted to be a writer. I loved English. [...] I wanted to know how to count my money, so I love math. You got to take what you want out of [school] and it will definitely put you in the right direction.'

Amen to that.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can't mix both types of math entry in your comment.
