A Tricky One

A Tricky One
See if you can solve this equation non-mathematically (the answer is not a number):

12 + 144 + 20 + 3√4
__________________  + (5 x 11)  = 9^2 + 0   
            7

Not sure, but it isn't the answer (the numerical answer is 81, but that's not what I'm looking for).

Your secret is safe with me. I broke my math bone in the fifth grade and it didn't heal properly.

Just Googled the answer.

Creative but annoying.

Anyway, that's not really solving the equation. That's just reframing it in a different way.

I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!
