This question already has an answer here:
I study mathematics and as I'm sure you can imagine, often read the word formula. I also quite often come across formulas used as the plural. This always annoys me as I was under the impression that the correct plural of formula was formulae?
Is there any consensus or information as to why there is two (seemingly) accepted forms of this? I thought that formulae probably has a Latin derivation and formulas may be Americanized?
