Modern Maths invented by women

Modern Maths invented by women

Equation 1
Human = eat + sleep + work + enjoy
Donkey = eat + sleep

Human = Donkey + work + enjoy
if, Human - enjoy = Donkey + work

In other words,
Human that don't know enjoy = Donkey
that work
(Eqn 1)


Equation 2
Men = eat + sleep + earn money
Donkeys = eat + sleep
Men = Donkeys + earn money
(Eqn 2)
If Men - earn money = Donkeys
In other words,
Men that don't earn money = Donkeys
(Eqn 3)

Equation 3
Women = eat + sleep + spend
Donkeys = eat + sleep
Women = Donkeys + spend
(Eqn 4)
If, Women - spend = Donkeys
In other words,
Women that don't spend = Donkeys
(Eqn 5)
To Conclude:
From Eqn 3 and Eqn 5
Men that don't earn money = Women that
don't spend
Men earn money not to let women become
(Postulate 1)

Women spend not to let men become
(Postulate 2)

From Eqn 2 + Eqn 4, we have
Men + Women = Donkeys + earn money +
Donkeys + spend
From Postulates 1 and 2, we can

Man + Woman = 2 Donkeys
And the Donkeys live happily ever
