Carey's Maths Mistake

MARIAH CAREY's decision to call her album E=MC2 doesn't add up - leading mathematicians insist she "misread" the meaning behind ALBERT EINSTEIN's famous formula.
The Hero hitmaker used Einstein's mass-energy equivalence sum as the title of her 2008 LP.
In interviews to promote the record, the singer's eleventh studio release, Carey told reporters she re-interpreted the equation to stand for "emancipation equals Mariah Carey times two".
But Dr David Leslie, lecturer in Statistics Department of Mathematics at Britain's Bristol University, has slammed the star's choice of title - insisting Carey didn't properly research the meaning of the equation before using it.
He tells the BBC, "(Carey has) misread the algebra. The 'two' in the equation means C squared, not MC multiplied by two. The correct reading of the equation is E=MCC, so perhaps Mariah's re-interpretation should have been 'Emancipation equals Mariah Carey Carey'?"
