# How Many More 9s - Poem by Douglas Scotney

are there in 729²
than there are in 729?

729² = 9² x 81² = 9² x 9² x 9² = 9 x 9 x 9 x 9 x 9 x 9.

9 by 9 is 81,

81 by 9 is 729,

729 by 9 is 6,561,

6,561 by 9 is 59,049

There are 81 less than 59,049 more 9s
in the square of 729.

## Poet's Notes about The Poem

after seeing the movie 'x+y'.

720^2 =
10^2 x 8^2 x 9^2 =
100 x 8 x 8 x 9 x 9 =
6,400 x 9 x 9 = 57,600 x 9 = 518,400, or
7,200 x 8 x 9 = 57,600 x 9 = 518,400, or
7,200 x 9 x 8 = 64,800 x 8 = 518,400, or
