those who understand binary, those who don't, and those who didn't expect this joke to be in base 3.

So a statistician and a physicist went hunting. They saw this 8 point deer and the physicist took a shot, missed by 2 meters to the right.

The statistician took his shot, it went 2 meters to the left.

GOT IT, he says!

The variation of the first one that I've heard:

There are only three kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who can't.

Why is 6 so afraid of 7?

Because 7,8,9.

I didn't get it until I said it out loud.

I am afraid the only maths joke I know of is:

There are only three kinds of people in this world; Those who can count and those who can't.

-and I got that one from somebody else. So that's three people involved here; me and him.

So the math classmates really respected their professor and on his birthday planted a tree in his name. It was a special tree. It had square roots.

Why are trees positive?

Because if they were negative they would only have imaginary roots

An Irish maths joke

What do three oaks equal?

9 (tree + tree + tree)

If a dog poos under each one now what does it equal?

10 (tree and a turd + tree and a turd + tree and a turd)

A computer programmer was sent to the shops by his wife to get a loaf of bread, and if they had eggs he was to get a dozen. He returned with twelve loaves of bread.

The wife needs to debug him and try again. A software course might help.
