#### Earl's Laws of Mathematical Ethics:

*First:*- Any unit of angle other than the radian is mathematically ugly.
*Second:*- Any continuous logarithm or exponential to any
base other than
`e`is mathematically ugly. *Third:*- The absolute value function is mathematically ugly.
- I am often known to call myself "7.389056099", which is (to the number of significant digits shown) a transcendental number that can be obtained in only two or three keystrokes on a typical scientific calculator. Can you figure out what this number means? Hint: see Earl's Second Law of Mathematical Ethics.
