Most men don't consider more than one, two or maybe three ways to tie their tie, if they tie one at all - but the fact is, there are far more ways to do it than most would ever imagine and because of that mathematicians have at times set themselves the task of trying to discern if the number is finite, and if so, what that number might be.
