I like math, and this describes the Trinity in a way that I really could understand.

"How can God be three and yet one? Isn't this a contradiction? It would seem that God could be one and not three, or three and not one. But He cannot be both three and one at the same time. It would be a violation of the most fundamental law of thought, namely, the law of noncontradiction. First of all, the Christian belief in a Trinity of three persons in one God is not a contradiction. A contradiction occurs only when something is both A and non-A at the same time and in the same sense. God is both three and one at the same time, but not in the same sense. He is three persons, but one essence. He is three persons but only one in nature...God is like one to the third power (1 x 1 x 1=1). God is not 1+1+1=3, which is tritheism or polytheism."
