**The proof to the great salary theorem >> If you can’t follow this it implies you earn a lot of money!**

If you can **not** follow the proof to the great salary theorem then it implies that you earn a lot of money!

This theorem was originally posted as Dilbert’s salary theorem which states that engineers and mathematicians can not earn as much as sales and traders : )

The great salary theorem can be proved mathematically as shown below:

** Given:**

Power = Work / Time

and,

Knowledge is Power

Substituting knowledge for power, we obtain:

Knowledge = Work/ Time

If time = money, then: Knowledge = Work/ Money

Solving this equation for money, we obtain:

Money = Work / Knowledge

Therefore, as knowledge approaches o(zero), money approaches infinity, regardless of the amount of work done.

**Conclusion:** the less you know, the more money you make.
