Math is universal, but it's also the least understood subject taught in school. Offering a new way to experience math, Taylor Marie Frey and Mike Wesolowski use the Pythagorean Theorem to figure out how far apart two ex-lovers are when they realize that they cannot live without each other, then use addition and logic to explore the ridiculous wage gap. Throughout this book, follow a series of characters as they apply for jobs, fall in love, get abducted by aliens, and life's other big and small moments, all of which are dictated by math. With the help of humor, mathematical history, and how-to-solve sections, you can figure out their destinies; unlike in our everyday lives, however, the answers are in the back of the book.
